Prevent Flood Damage To Your Home, Protect Local Wildlife, And Keep Your Drinking Water Clean
Residents of the Ottawa Valley’s Mississippi and Carp River Watersheds deserve a clean, well-managed water system. That’s why MVCA protects the needs of landowners and the environment by using an Integrated Approach To Watershed Management. Across 11 municipalities, MVCA works to keep your drinking water, local ecosystems, and your property safe. Reconnect with your natural environment by visiting locally significant areas, helping at home or helping MVCA monitor your water quality.
The Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) flood forecasting and warning program monitors weather conditions, snowpack water content, estimates expected river flows and water levels and issues flood advisories or warnings as required. MVCA provides early warning and continuous monitoring to municipal and provincial emergency response personnel through a flood event.
