This week's rainfall could bring flooding along the Rideau River.The Rideau Valley Conservation Authority says lower-lying waterfront properties along the Long Reach of the Rideau between Kars and Kemptville will likely be the first affected.

"In particular, access to Hilly Lane, Cedar Beach, Rideau Glen and other neighbourhoods on that reach of the river can be expected to be compromised as the rain enters the system," the RVCA said in a statement Tuesday.
