River conditions forecasts posted on 2011-05-04 by Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board
Rainfall and snowmelt runoff from the north is rapidly filling reservoirs in that part of the basin. For the next few days, water levels and flows will remain relatively stable from Pembroke down to Lac Deshênes in the Ottawa/Gatineau region with minor flooding in low-lying areas. Rainfall forecast for this week in the south-eastern portion of the watershed will cause levels to increase slightly on the lower Ottawa River causing minor flooding of low-lying areas in the Montreal region.
