Here’s the latest water level update from the community

The short term relief in the drawdown of our lake water levels is over.

As a result of lack of precipitation, as well as water demands for the Trent Canal System and minimum flows at Peterborough and further south, the Trent Severn Waterway (TSW) has removed several logs from the Mississagua Dam. The latest forecast from TSW predicts our lakes will drop more than 15 inches between Aug 27 and September 10.

The latest water level forecast is available on the website of the Coalition for Equitable Water Flow (CEWF) at
