Forecast for 2021-04-06

River conditions forecasts posted on 2021-04-06 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee

Water levels and flows continue to slowly recede in most areas along the Ottawa River. With forecasts of above-normal temperatures over the next few days, the remaining snow in the northern parts of the basin is expected to continue melting over the next week. Most of the spring runoff from these northern areas will be stored in reservoirs in that part of the basin as principal reservoirs are being managed to reach their target summer levels. 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 central part of the basin recedes. Note: refer to the April 6 bulletin by the Ottawa River Secretariat regarding daily forecasting of river conditions no longer being required.
