An eastern Ontario conservation authority is warning local residents about the potential for spring flooding.

Lower Trent Conservation has issued a flood watch for its vast watershed region – stretching from Quinte West to Grafton – and from Lake Ontario to Rice Lake.

Conservation officials say up to 75 millimetres of precipitation – in the form of rain and freezing rain – could fall from today through this weekend.

That means water levels in local creeks and streams could rise – possibly resulting in the flooding of access roads, backyards or basements in low-lying areas.

Flows and water levels on the Trent River have also been increasing this week – as Parks Canada staff make adjustments at water control structures.
