Flood Update
  • Although water levels are anticipated to go down slightly over the coming days, the City of Ottawa will not begin recovery operations until water levels have receded a significant amount. Until then, residents are urged to leave sandbag walls intact and keep flood and construction debris away from the road.
  • Removing sandbags and flood debris from your property prematurely can impede flood response operations which are ongoing.
  • When sandbag removal does commence, it will be important to not mix used sandbags, which are contaminated, with unused sandbags, which are clean.
  • People are advised to stay away from flooded areas to not impede flood response operations.
  • People are advised to stay off the Ottawa River in and around the areas impacted by the recent floods.

For more information please visit the City of Ottawa website.

Our hearts are with those directly affected by flooding and our sincere gratitude to all who have volunteered to assist with flooding or flood prevention.
