Inflow to Lake of the Woods remains high and as a result, the level of Lake of the Woods increased by 15 cm (5 in) over the last week. With some precipitation in the forecast, another outflow increase is scheduled this week to slow the rate of level rise.
Lake of the Woods authorized outflow will increase to 675 m3/s on Thursday, April 27. This flow change will cause levels along the Winnipeg River to increase by 14 cm (5 in) directly below the Norman Dam and by 9 cm (4 in) above the Dalles. The level at Minaki will not be affected.
