Rising Ottawa River Water Levels

The Ottawa River Regulating Committee would like to inform watershed residents that levels and flows along the Ottawa River are expected to begin increasing as a result of the onset of the spring freshet period in the Ottawa River basin. The Committee cautions residents along the shores of the Ottawa River from Mattawa down to the Montreal region that throughout the spring freshet period water levels can rise rapidly at times and cause minor flooding in low-lying areas.
