Highway 307 Flooding

Posted on: May 2, 2022  |   ,

Manitoba Infrastructure contacted us with the following information

Water on PR 307 5 kms west of junction PR 307 and PR 309. Signed and Marked.
What is happening at PR 307 by Brereton Lake in the Whiteshell?
The water that flows out of Inverness Falls at Brereton Lake is also close to overtopping PR 307 more to the south. If you refer to the map below, you can see that if this happens we will have a bit of an emergency situation as the lakes in between those locations would be stranded and have no access to emergency services. The problem is that Brereton is getting very high as well so we are trying to strike the perfect balance between the two at the moment.
Brereton is coming up about 2” per day and the water at 307 is rising about 1.5 “ per day but seems to be tapering off slightly. Parks estimated that there is still 8” of freeboard at 307 d/s of Inverness so I think that it will be fine with the current log orientation. Essentially, we are releasing as much water as possible from Brereton Lake while concurrently attempting to keep the road dry. Thankfully there is no rain in the forecast so let’s hope it stays that way.
