Ottawa river drawdown at Des Joachims generating station

Bulletins posted on 2020-03-10 by Ontario Power Generation

OPG is currently in the process of drawing levels on the Ottawa river down upstream of Des Joachims generating station. This annual drawdown is expected to proceed over the next two to three weeks until levels reach the lower operating minimum. Expect a lowering of 10 – 25 cm per day over that period. Levels will be maintained lowered throughout spring until such time that the risk of high flows subside and levels can be raised to the normal summer minimum.
