Manitoba Hydro Reminder of Continued Record High Water Flows on the Winnipeg River

Posted on: May 27, 2022  |  

For the third week in a row, Manitoba Hydro is warning residents and resource users along the Winnipeg River from Pointe du Bois to Sagkeeng First Nation of increased water flows due to extremely high precipitation in Northwest Ontario and Southern Manitoba this spring.

 The Lake of the Woods Control Board (LWCB) was forced to make large increases in outflows from Lake of the Woods and Lac Seul into the Winnipeg River due to these conditions. The LWCB regulates the water levels of Lake of the Woods and Lac Seul, Ont.

 It is expected that the Winnipeg River will crest between June 5-10.

 As a result, Winnipeg River property owners and resource users will see water levels increase at various locations over the next 10 to 14 days, as follows: 

  • 6 inches upstream of Eight Foot Falls
  • 10 inches in Nutimik Lake
  • 9 inches in Dorothy Lake
  • 11 inches in Margaret/Eleanor Lake
  • 1 foot in Sylvia Lake
  • 8 inches upstream of Silver Falls
  • 10 inches Powerview-Pine Falls
