The group that monitors the Ottawa River water flows says the region can expect water levels and flow to increase this week as the weather warms, but says conditions won't be anything like last year's record-breaking spring flooding.

Rainfall and snowmelt runoff from the north continues to fill reservoirs in that part of the Ottawa River basin, according to a forecast this week from the Ottawa River Regulation and Planning Board.
