You can track the water levels and predictions for our neighbourhood yourself at www.ottawariver.ca/river-levels-flows.php  Our neighbourhood water levels will closely track with Lake Deschenes at Britannia (Ottawa) which was reporting a height of 60.12m above sea level at 4 pm May 5, 2017.  The predicted peak is 60.40m on Sunday, May 7 (i.e. 28 vertical centimeters higher than what we see right now).  

The next update to these predictions will be 2 pm Saturday.

Historical records for water levels at Britannia are here: www.ottawariver.ca/ottawa-river-britannia.php.  I'm not quite sure how to square that information with the information that 60.40m is not a 1 in 100 year level...
