FLOOD WATERS

Flood waters in Ottawa.…

The Blan­chard River in Ottawa crested at 28.85 feet at 3 p.m. Mon­day. Flood stage is 23 feet.

That crest, 28.85 feet, marks the sixth high­est his­tor­i­cal crest for the river in Ottawa.

The high­est crest was 33.3 feet on March 13, 1913. The high­est crest in the last decade was 31.4 feet on Aug. 23, 2007.

Mean­while, a meet­ing with the U.S. Army Corps of Engi­neers to dis­cuss flood mit­i­ga­tion plans for the Blan­chard River in Ottawa and Find­lay has now been delayed until February.
