Lake Ontario outflows increasing again after Ottawa River peaks a second time

Outflows from Lake Ontario have increased once again after they were temporarily reduced after heavy rainfall last weekend caused a second peak in Ottawa River flows, which led to an increase in St. Lawrence River water levels and additional flooding on the St. Lawrence River near Montreal.

With Ottawa River flows forecasted to decline, Lake Ontario outflow increases will be made to balance high water levels causing flooding near Montreal and downstream in the lower St. Lawrence River, with high water levels causing flooding on Lake Ontario and the upper St. Lawrence River.
