Water levels on Rideau River recede, but flood warning remains in effect: RVCA

By  Ted Raymond, CFRA News, April 10, 2017

Water levels on the Rideau River have dropped since the weekend, but the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority says a flood warning is still in effect.

The Authority says levels have dropped about 22 centimeters since Saturday's peak on the Long Reach between Burritts Rapids and Manotick, but not all areas are fully dry yet.

They say the river needs to drop another 34 centimeters before safe access to some neighbourhoods near Kemptville, such as Hilly Lane, can be restored.
