Forecast for 2022-04-17
River conditions forecasts posted on 2022-04-17 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee
Water levels and flows in most locations along the main stem of the Ottawa River are close to seasonal values. Levels are expected to continue increasing over the next few days due to recent precipitation combined with snowmelt over the central parts of the basin. Minor flooding in low-lying areas may occur over the next few days depending on the amount of spring runoff. Low-lying areas are those locations that regularly flood during the spring freshet period. Reservoirs throughout the basin are being used to store runoff from the northern areas.
