FLOOD WARNING: Ottawa River – Arnprior to Hawkesbury – Update #9


Please note that there are sand bags at your disposal at the Lefaivre's Municipal Garage in case of flood/emergency.

1963 Hotel de Ville St., Lefaivre ON K0B 1J0



Residents are advised to stay away from rivers as the forecasted weather may rapidly increase river flows and banks might be unstable and slippery. Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

Residents in flood prone or low-lying areas, historically susceptible to flooding, should also take the necessary precautions to protect their property, such as:

  • Ensuring sump pump is clear, in good working condition and has a backwater valve on it.

  • Portable backup generator and pump.

  • Ensuring downspouts are clear and the outlet is at least 3 m from the dwelling.

  • Removing or securing items that might float away as flows increase.

  • Removing valuable items from basements or lower floors that could be subject to flooding.

  • Keep emergency phone numbers handy.

  • Familiarize yourself with your municipality’s emergency preparedness plan
