“Areas of the Whiteshell have experienced heavy rain. The Winnipeg River system is experiencing very high flows due to significantly higher than normal precipitation in eastern Manitoba and northern Ontario.  The Lake of the Woods Control Board has been directing a series of outflow increases from the dams at the outlets of Lake of the Woods and Lac Seul in response to these conditions, with a goal of balancing the high inflow conditions being experienced throughout the region.

Nutimik Lake, which is part of the Winnipeg River system, is at 907.9 ft., a record high level on the lake.  The water level at Nutimik Lake is expected to rise by four to six inches over the next week but this increase may be higher if heavy local rainfall occurs.”

Additional information as of June 26, 2014 from Manitoba Conservation:

“To date there has been some flooding that has impacted low lying cottage areas, campgrounds and other park facilities along Nutimik Lake.  Conservation and Waster Stewardship is closely monitoring the situation regarding water levels and the potential for further impact to campers, cottagers and property owners.  Attempts are being made to contact cottage owners that are being, or will be impacted so that they may take steps to protect their properties.

Sand has been hauled to the ball diamond near Otter Falls and Nutimik Block 1 boat Launch, where cottagers needing to protect their properties can find sand bags.  In an attempt to assist cottagers with the situation Firefighting crews are currently filling sand bags at these locations.”

Whiteshell Snowmobile clubLooking for a Fulfilling Opportunity?WE WANT YOU! We all know that snowmobile trails don’t just happen. It takes resources and many volunteer hours to maintain 13,000 kilometers of snowmobile trails in the areas of signing, grooming, equipment maintenance, shelter upkeep, etc. Why volunteer? People volunteer for many different reasons. For some, it’s to help others and give back to the community and club. For others, it is to build self-confidence, gain personal growth and learn new skills. We know it’s important to get outside during winter and enjoy all that Manitoba has to offer. Giving your time lends you a sense of well-being and connectedness to others and certainly fights boredom. It allows you to share your talents, abilities, and experiences while at the same time learning new skills from others. And don’t forget volunteers can have fun and enjoy themselves by making new friends. To volunteer please contact Snoman at info@snoman.mb.ca or your local club today! ... See MoreSee Less
