Parks Canada Issues a Water Management Update for the Trent-Severn Basin
On November 17th the Parks Canada posted a Water Management Update for the entire Trent - Severn watershed (click here) noting low water levels across the reservoir area and the risk that levels may decline further. The Update confirms that all of the reservoir dams have been at their winter set levels since the first of October. However lake levels have continued to fall because of the lack of normal fall rainfall. The flow in both the Gull and Burnt Rivers is also very low. The Update further notes that lake levels may continue to fall and residents should be aware of the risk of very low water levels this winter unless we begin to see significant rainfall.
