In 2017 and 2019 Lake Ontario reached historically high water levels and a number of Quinte West residences and businesses experienced some degree of flooding. Based on the current Lake Ontario water levels with an expectation of normal precipitation in the region we project that 2020 might bring more of the same. 

In an effort to keep everyone up-to-date, we invite you to sign-up for our email list. The information we collect helps us map and track areas of concern. 

Sign-up to receive updates on the water level situation

In an effort to help residents and property owners prepare for and react to high water levels we have compiled a number of resources.

The City of Quinte West will provide sand and sandbags for pick-up at the Public Works Ops Centre 177 North Murray St. in Trenton. If residents need materials delivered or to rent equipment, we have complied a list of local contrators:

Every attempt has been made to provide the best possible information, but the list is by no means comprehensive, and we do not guarantee its accuracy. The list of businesses has been provided as possible resources for residents, but this is not a specific endorsement.
