FORESTERS FALLS, ON, Aug. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - Despite recent dry weather in eastern Ontario, operators of popular OWL Rafting say the Ottawa River is experiencing normal summer water levels and there is plenty of whitewater rafting fun available for the whole family.
"We have heard from some of our guests that people are shying away from enjoying whitewater rafting because they assume the water levels are too low due to the dry weather, but that's certainly not the case. Summer water levels actually bring out many exciting features normally submerged at higher flows," says Kirsten Trudeau, River Operations Manager at OWL Rafting.
"The water levels here are normal for this time of the year and the spell of warm weather we have been having makes experiencing these world-class whitewater facilities a very inviting way to cool off," she says. "We want to assure the public that all of our facilities on the Ottawa and Madawaska rivers are in full operation, and visitors can enjoy the beauty and excitement with their friends and family."
The 25-acre OWL Rafting resort is located near Foresters Falls, Ontario, less than four hours from Toronto and only 90 minutes from Ottawa. It is nestled on the banks of the Ottawa River's 12-kilometer "Rocher Fendu" (split rock) section. The water's volume, velocity and wave size rival those of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon, but the water is warm, and the whitewater is interspersed with quiet pools and sandy beaches.
