Water Levels

Fall 2017 Water Levels Update – Sept 30
(Director Mark Warlow)

The Lake level was at 317.90 m above sea level at time of writing which is in line with the Ministry’s Lake level management target.

Dam repairs started 11 Sept 2017 and were scheduled for two weeks. The following is an excerpt from the MNRF’s update on the repair:
“The repair project has taken longer than expected however appears to have been successful.  The replacement concrete has been poured and is now curing.  I believe the contractor is planning to remove the cofferdam and formwork around the middle of next week.  The project was completed without any impacts to the water level on the lake. In terms of operations, we have started drawing the lake down to its target fall/winter elevation. Barring any unusual rainfall events we should accomplish this on time.”
