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.

Whiteshell Snowmobile clubLooking for a Fulfilling Opportunity?WE WANT YOU! We all know that snowmobile trails don’t just happen. It takes resources and many volunteer hours to maintain 13,000 kilometers of snowmobile trails in the areas of signing, grooming, equipment maintenance, shelter upkeep, etc. Why volunteer? People volunteer for many different reasons. For some, it’s to help others and give back to the community and club. For others, it is to build self-confidence, gain personal growth and learn new skills. We know it’s important to get outside during winter and enjoy all that Manitoba has to offer. Giving your time lends you a sense of well-being and connectedness to others and certainly fights boredom. It allows you to share your talents, abilities, and experiences while at the same time learning new skills from others. And don’t forget volunteers can have fun and enjoy themselves by making new friends. To volunteer please contact Snoman at info@snoman.mb.ca or your local club today! ... See MoreSee Less
