The Pembroke District Department of Natural Resources and Forestry has advised local residents that a flood warning is in effect for the Ottawa River through Friday, May 12, 2023.
Water levels and flows along the Ottawa River have remained elevated in response to last weekend’s precipitation, and most river systems feeding the Ottawa have either peaked or are now receding, the ministry said.
Water levels along the Ottawa River are expected to remain elevated into the next week, and flood levels observed in some areas are expected to continue.
Residents who have been affected by high water and flow conditions in the past should maintain necessary actions to protect/secure vulnerable property located near rivers and lakes, monitor developments closely, and keep updated. We recommend that you check your messages regularly.
