Forecast for 2023-04-12

River conditions forecasts posted on 2023-04-12 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee

Water levels and flows on the main stem of the Ottawa River have begun increasing due to snowmelt over the southern part of the basin. Levels and flows are expected to increase gradually over the coming week and stay close to seasonal freshet values.  Minor flooding in low-lying areas may occur over the next week depending on weather conditions. 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.
