EXPECTING MINOR FLOODING ON THE OTTAWA RIVER
Press Release posted on 2020-04-09 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee
The Ottawa River Regulating Committee cautions that levels and flows on the Ottawa River continue to rise gradually due to on-going snowmelt in the central and northern portions of the basin. Minor flood levels may be exceeded starting this Monday in flood prone areas along the river between Fort-Coulonge and the Montreal region, depending on temperatures and precipitation received over the next few days. The minor flood level is defined as the level at which parts of some streets, lawns and parks are beginning to flood, with no or few houses/buildings affected by water levels. Water levels are currently expected to remain below major flood thresholds in all locations.
