River Watch 2023 # 1

Effective today, March 06, 2023, the International Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Board has authorized a minor deviation from Plan 2014. Flows at the Moses-Saunders Dam will be reduced by approximately 2,000 cubic metres/second until March 12th to facilitate a concrete inspection at a dam on the river in Quebec. To offset this deviation, outflows will be increased from March 13 through the 24th, as conditions allow. Due to the temporary reduced outflow, those living along the river may notice a slight rise in water levels. Those levels should recede once the outflow has been increased.

Municipal staff will continue to monitor conditions and will advise residents accordingly.
