Forecast for 2023-04-16

River conditions forecasts posted on 2023-04-16 by Ottawa River Regulating Committee

Water levels and flows on the main stem of the Ottawa River are increasing in all locations due to the rapid melt of the snowpack in the central and southern parts of the basin. Levels are expected to exceed minor flood levels in all areas along the river from Lake Coulonge down to the Montreal area starting Monday. The minor flood level is defined as the level at which parts of some streets, lawns and parks are beginning to flood, with no or few houses/buildings being affected. Water levels are currently expected to remain below or close to the start of major flood thresholds in all locations.
