LWCB Logo Lake of the Woods Control Board Notice Board


Issued:  2018.04.23

Normally issued weekly on Thursdays but may be issued more frequently or on other days depending on conditions.
 

 

Water levels throughout the basin are generally below normal for this time of year owing to a late melt of the snowpack and extremely limited precipitation over the past several weeks. Flows are rising since the snowmelt began last week, but rainfall will be required to reach normal spring levels in many areas of the Winnipeg River basin.

 


The current level of Lake of the Woods is 322.32 m (1057.5 ft), less than a 5th percentile level for this time of year. The average lake level rose by 2 cm (1 in) over the past week and is expected to rise by 3 to 7 cm (1 to 3 in) over the next week.

Lake of the Woods authorized outflow is 150 m³/s.

The current level of Lac Seul is 354.75 m (1163.9 ft), a 35th percentile level for this time of year. The average lake level changed little over the past week and is expected to rise by 1 to 6 cm (1 to 2 in) over the next week.
