Update:  As of 3:00 p.m., Friday, May 2nd, Brookfield Power Mississagi Power Trust advised the Muncipality that  they had to increase the water discharge rates to 600 cubic metres per second at Red Rock Dam.
Original Post, published Friday, May 2nd, 2014, at 10:28 a.m. follows: The Municipality has been advised by Brookfield Power Mississagi Power Trust that, due to current watershed conditions, they have had to increase water discharge rates to 550 cubic metres per second at Red Rock Dam
As a result of this advise, Huron Shores has issued a flood watch for residents and properties affected by the Mississagi River water levels.
A flood watch asks that you monitor conditions, and exercise increased efforts to ensure personal safety as well as the protection of your property.
While the present water discharge rates do not pose an immediate risk of flood, should Mississagi Power Trust be forced to increase the discharge rate to 650 cubic metres per second, flooding may become a real possibility. 
Should this happen, affected property owners will be contacted again to advise of a flood warning. 
A flood warning indicates that flooding may be imminent and you should take immediate measures to ensure personal safety and protection of your property.
Please listen to media advisories, and consult, for further information.
