Falcon Lake Dam Rehabilitation Open House Reminder

Posted on: January 11, 2020  |  

Please be reminded of the Falcon Lake Dam Rehabilitation Open House scheduled for Wednesday, January 22nd – details are listed below.

While reviewing the options for lake level control the WCA would like you to keep in mind the following information:

Occasional flooding cannot be prevented entirely, but to reduce the frequency to the extent feasible, as well as the severity and duration of any flood, we must be able to discharge at least 150 cubic feet per second at any “normal” lake level.  This flow rate provides the ability to maintain a small (6 to 9 inches) buffer against flooding through summer, and to reduce the lake level to target winter level before freeze-up.

Which of the Options being examined – can do this?

Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, we found a small water craft (paddle boat) adrift in Big Whiteshell Lake. It was found floating in the middle of the lake no where near a cabin. I was wondering if you could post something for me? If they can identify what it is then we will know it is going to the rightful owner. They can message me to identify what it is and for pick up information. Or call me at 1 (204) 348-3294. ... See MoreSee Less
