The Province has issued a flood warning impacting the Whiteshell

http://news.gov.mb.ca/news/index.html?item=31526&posted=2014-06-25

“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.”
