River condition forecast on 2016-04-20
River conditions forecasts posted on 2016-04-20 by Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board
Reservoirs throughout the basin are starting to fill gradually. Due to warming temperatures, snowmelt runoff is expected to increase gradually in the central and northern portions of the watershed this week. Snow pack water content is currently much above seasonal averages in those areas. In the next few days, water levels and flows will increase on the main stem of the Ottawa River and could reach minor flooding levels in low lying areas.
