Rideau dropping, but Ottawa River could see minor flooding

The danger of flooding appears to have passed for the Rideau Lakes and River but there’s still some chance of flooding in the Ottawa River late this week and next week.

Rain in the forecast for the next few days isn’t likely to raise the Rideau system, said Patrick Larson of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority. Even the rainfall of 15 to 20 centimetres over the weekend “didn’t really have much impact” against the overall trend of falling river and lake levels, he said.
