Boaters - Please Stay off the Ottawa River!

Ottawa – Waves can breach sandbags and inundate properties in flooded areas. Boaters are asked to stay away, and to treat the shoreline areas of the Ottawa River as no-wake zones along Fitzroy Harbour, Constance Bay, Armitage, Crystal Bay, Britannia, and Cumberland.


Debris in the water can also pose a hazard to boaters.
