Rideau River water level expected to peak this Sunday evening

Public Works, Environmental Services, Corporate Communications and Office of Emergency Management met this morning to discuss this situation.

Public Works expects to complete ice removal operations on the Rideau River by this evening. Ice removal operations have been completed on the Ottawa River.

Rideau River level is expected to peak Sunday evening, but is dependent on two major factors: snow melt and rainfall amounts in the coming days.

Projected  impacts may affect some park lands (Windsor, Brentwood and River Rain) and roadways (Belmont St);  the roadways should be still accessible by motor vehicles.
