The Planning Board was established to ensure integrated management of the principal reservoirs of the Ottawa River Basin:
Levels and flows at most locations on the main stem of the Ottawa River remain close to normal for this time of the year and are expected to be fairly stable over the coming week.
More than 70 mm of rain was received over several thousand square kilometres of the basin between Saturday (April 29) and Monday evening (May 1). That is more rain than what is normally received over the entire month of April. Elsewhere, 40 – 55 mm of rain was received across the entire basin.
Need help to determine how high water will be at your location? Follow the simple steps that are explained in this document.
The section ‘About ORRPB’ now includes more information about who we are, what we do and how to stay informed about flows and levels in the Ottawa River.
