Protocol for Management of the West Hawk Dam

Posted on: February 13, 2017  |   ,

On January 30th, a delegation of cottage owners at West Hawk  and Caddy Lakes reached agreement on an Operating Protocol for management of the West Hawk Dam that sets the flow rate of water from West Hawk into Caddy.  This has long been a contentious issue between the cottagers of these 2 lakes, and the protocol will remove the conflict of interest from  operating decisions that must be made by Manitoba Infrastructure in deciding what water level to maintain in both lakes on an ongoing basis.

    Suggest the addition of a gauge or measuring yardstick at the WHL dam so owners can see the levels being maintained.

      The Water level information can be found at the following address
      gov.mb.ca/mit/floodinfo/floodoutlook/lakes_information.html#lake_levels
      There is a viewable level gauge near the Marina, as well as near the dam, however, you need the conversion factor to calculate the level reading. Easier to look it up on the web.

Caddy Air Field – Manitoba Historical SocietyDuring the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Canadian federal government employed able-bodied, unemployed men to build public infrastructure. In return for their labour, each man was provided with food, shelter, and 20 cents per day. In Manitoba, three construction gangs worked in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve (today’s Whiteshell Provincial Park) to build roads to enable the development of tourism in this part of the province. Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, we found a small water craft (paddle boat) adrift in Big Whiteshell Lake. It was found floating in the middle of the lake no where near a cabin. I was wondering if you could post something for me? If they can identify what it is then we will know it is going to the rightful owner. They can message me to identify what it is and for pick up information. Or call me at 1 (204) 348-3294. ... See MoreSee Less
