“MY CARP RUNNETH OVER”: Pathway flooding is perfectly normal, says City

By Glen Gower, StittsvilleCentral, April 13, 2017

The mighty Carp River overflowed its banks during the first week of April, covering the adjacent floodplain and recreation paths with water. Officials say that’s completely normal.

The photos on this page were all taken on Saturday morning, April 8, after a few days of very heavy rain near the end of the spring melt. The bridge and paths that are covered with water are part of the new multi-use pathways installed last fall as part of the Carp River Restoration Plan (CRRP).
