Forecast for 2020-05-08

River conditions forecasts posted on 2020-05-08 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee

Spring runoff in the northern portion of the basin is slowly receding and filling principal reservoirs in those regions. In Mattawa levels and flows should remain fairly stable over the weekend. Flows and levels along the Ottawa River from Pembroke to Lac Deschenes are starting to decrease. Between Gatineau (Hull) and the Montreal region, levels and flows have stabilized and are expected to start decreasing into the weekend. The general trend, for the full length of the river, is for a steady decrease in flows and levels as the remaining spring runoff in the basin recedes. Note: today is the final 4-day forecast for spring freshet 2020, which covers the May 8 -11 period.
