The Leeds and Thousand Islands Community Control Group met just before the weekend to get an update on flood conditions locally. Energy Ottawa representative Murray Hall, confirmed that water levels have decreased anywhere from two to seven inches on inland lakes and tributaries since last Monday. Properties and residences along Marble Rock Road are stable at this point. They've seen a slow stabilization on Charleston Lake, Gananoque Lake and at the Gananoque dam this week as the water is making its way to the St. Lawrence River, Hall reported. Shawn Fairbank of the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) noted that the rise in water levels for both the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario have been significant in the last week and are being monitored closely. Seasonal residents may be returning to damaged docks, boat houses and cottages. Due to the continuing high-water levels, the public docks at Ivy Lea and Seeley's Bay remain closed. The boat ramp in Seeley's Bay and one in Rockport are open. The dock at the Outlet is under water but the ramp is open. Over the past week, Township officials provided approximately 3,000 sand bags and 150 tonnes of sand to residents.
