Expecting Minor Flooding on the Ottawa River
Press Release posted on 2023-04-14 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee
The Ottawa River Regulating Committee cautions that levels and flows along the Ottawa River continue to rise due to on-going snowmelt in the central and southern portions of the basin. Minor flood levels may be exceeded in flood prone areas along the river between Lake Coulonge and the Montreal region starting Monday, April 17. 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 being affected. Water levels are currently expected to remain below major flood thresholds in all locations.
Further bulletins will be published if levels are expected to exceed major flood levels.
