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
