Abstract

On July 18-21, 1996, a severe rainstorm caused widespread flooding along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River. At the Lake Ha!Ha! reservoir, inadequate available capacity to spill during the storm at the outlet dam resulted in the overtopping and erosion of a nearby earthfill saddle dyke. A new outlet formed at the site of the dyke, drained the reservoir over a period of many hours, and increased flooding. The flooding caused extensive geomorphic impacts along the river
