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.
