Winnipeg River Update from Lake of the Woods Control Board

Posted on: October 10, 2019  |  

The Lake of the Woods will be discharging its maximum outflow starting Oct 10. Lac Seul outflow is being increased from 550 to 600cms because of the latest precipitation too.

Water levels on the Winnipeg River in Manitoba are likely to be slightly lower than the historic high water levels of 1992. The predicted peak flow is in the range of 2300 to 2200cms.

Plans are to reduce LOW outflows prior to freeze-up weather permitting. Flows on Winnipeg River in Manitoba above 1400cms cause frazil ice problems.

The Lake of the Woods Control Board will be holding public meetings next week to review the latest conditions and forecasts for winter and spring given the exceptional situation, as well as to answer questions. The meetings are scheduled as follows:

Tuesday, October 15th

7:00 – 8:30 P.M.

Holiday Inn Winnipeg South

1330 Pembina Highway, Winnipeg

Wednesday, October 16th

7:00 – 8:30 P.M.

Clarion Lakeside Inn

470 1st Ave S, Kenora

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
