Lake of the Woods outflow reductions affecting Winnipeg River – Nov 28 Update

Posted on: November 29, 2019  |  

Here is the latest update from the Lake of the Woods Secretariat.

This is likely to be the last of the news announcements from them as they have reached their target discharge flow rate, and there is not likely to be much change before spring.

The last of the scheduled changes for Lake of the Woods outflow will be on Friday, November 29, with a target outflow of 800 m³/s. This is the target outflow for early winter and no further reductions are currently planned.

The Winnipeg River level is expected to decline as follows in response to this flow reduction.

Manitoba Hydro has provided the following level forecast for the Winnipeg River through the Whiteshell over the next week:

Nutimik Lake: decline by 22 cm (0.7 ft)

Dorothy Lake: decline by 17 cm (0.6 ft)

Margaret/ Eleanor Lake : decline by 14 cm (0.5 ft)

Sylvia Lake: decline by 8 cm (0.3 ft)

The high flows along the Winnipeg River and English River this winter will create potentially dangerous currents and unsafe ice conditions, including in some areas that normally have a stable ice cover. The Board urges caution when on or near the Winnipeg and English Rivers. Areas of high current in Lake of the Woods, particularly in the Kenora area near the outlet channels, will also have increased risk to ice safety.
