Six-week flood warning finally downgraded to water statement

A flood warning for the Ottawa River issued on April 19, 2019 by South Nation Conservation has finally been downgraded to a water safety statement.

Rainfall of 15 to 25 mm is possible late Saturday, June 1, into Sunday, June 2, 2019.

But despite this, water levels along the lower Ottawa River from Gatineau to the Grenville/Hawkesbury area are expected to slowly begin decreasing today and more rapidly over the coming days.

Water levels and flows are still high, but no additional increase in water levels is expected.
Residents in flood-prone areas are encouraged to closely monitor conditions and take necessary actions.

Residents are advised to stay away from watercourses where flows are high and where banks might be unstable. Parents are encouraged to explain dangers to children.

Updates to all projections will continue to be provided as they become available.

This statement is in effect until Friday, June 7, 2019 at 5:00 PM.

South Nation Conservation (SNC) and its Ottawa partners, the Rideau Valley and Mississippi Valley Conservation Authorities, monitor the water levels and weather forecasts with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program. Updates are provided as conditions change.

The Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board will be reassessing forecast conditions and providing hydrological condition updates on its website daily at www.ottawariver.ca/forecast.php.

Please visit www.nation.on.ca for more information. To provide feedback with respect to changes in water related conditions please email [email protected], post on our Facebook (/SouthNationConservation) or Twitter (@SouthNationCA).
