The Planning Board was established to ensure integrated management of the principal reservoirs of the Ottawa River Basin:
Flows and levels remain above normal, for this time of year, in several locations due to above average precipitation in some parts of the watershed over the last few weeks. Runoff from the north is declining in most locations but should remain above normal for this time of year over the next two weeks. Runoff from several local uncontrolled tributaries is now close to normal for this time of year. Along the main stem of the Ottawa River, flows and levels should continue to decline in most locations. A return to close to normal conditions is expected over the next ten days based on forecasts of no significant precipitation over that period.
Find out why on the second page of the 2022 Ottawa River Spring Freshet Review Bulletin.
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.
