Spring floods have impacted several rivers in the Pontiac that are being watched closely by public authorities. These include the Ottawa River and the Coulonge River.  

In the Pontiac, the chemin de la rivière Noire is causing problems for some residents, such as Eldon Denault, who has to take more time to get home. Eldon Denault says that the water level is so high that he could take a boat to get down the river but that it would not clear the bridge:

Eldon Denault estimates that at some points along the riverside, it would take less than 40 inches of water to flood the road. The authorities are monitoring the situation.
