Forecast for 2020-05-05
River conditions forecasts posted on 2020-05-05 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee
Spring runoff due to snowmelt and the April 30th precipitation event has peaked in the northern and central portions of the basin. Reservoirs in the Abitibi-Timiskaming region are expected to store most of the runoff in that region. Levels and flows have stabilized along the Ottawa River from Mattawa to Chats Lake. Elsewhere, levels and flows are starting to stabilize and should remain fairly stable today and tomorrow. The general trend, for the full length of the river, is for a decrease in flows and levels as little precipitation is forecast over the coming week.
