West Hawk Dam / Flooding on Caddy Lake

Posted on: October 8, 2019  |  

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.

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.
