In light of the recent rains and increased water flows, the Parks and Protected Spaces Branch reminds us that Manitoba Infrastructure is ultimately oversee the operation of Whiteshell Lakes that have control structures. They have provided the following update.
Operation decisions of the Whiteshell Lakes, whether it be removing or adding logs at the control structures, is the sole responsibility of Manitoba Infrastructure. Manitoba Infrastructure operates all these control structures for the balanced interest of all the stakeholders at the upstream and downstream side of the structures. Manitoba Infrastructure receives valuable input and advice from the Whiteshell Lakes Operation Committee and the Department of Sustainable Development so that mutual benefit of all the involved stakeholders is achieved.
We will not be removing more logs from the West Hawk Dam at this time as we do not want to exacerbate the flooding on Caddy Lake. Going forward, operations will be made as soon as they are deemed necessary by MI.
