The McKeough Dam remains closed as the water level along the Sydenham continues to slowly rise.

Yesterday, staff were out on the Thames trying to pull tree limbs and other debris from the gate of the diversion channel.

The Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority says the river is expected to peak in Thamesville tomorrow morning and in Chatham later that night.
