Spring thaw 2017

SPRING THAW AND WATER LEVELS

The spring thaw phenomenon is characterized by an increase in water flow and the elevation in the rise of a water course.  The highest volume of water recorded during the spring thaw period is known as the peak flow.  In 2013 the peak flow of the Ottawa River for one day was 59.76 metres for Lake Deschênes at Britannia (Ottawa River).

If you wish to keep an eye on the peak flow to date, please refer to the data corresponding to “Lake Deschenes at Britannia”  on the Ottawa River Regulation Planning Board Website, please click here.
