CEWF Update: Coalition For Equitable Water Flow
October 1, 2019

From the TSW:

Parks Canada’s water management team continues to actively monitor water levels and flows, and weather forecasts across the Trent-Severn Waterway. These factors are used to determine dam operations on a daily basis for the Trent-Severn Waterway.


Parks Canada and the Trent-Severn Water Management team continue to manage water levels moving our lakes toward the low level reached each fall.

Readers should check the weekly drawdown forecasts to be sure you are prepared for water level changes. We will continue to publish them on this website.

The Trent-Severn Water Management team will be actively monitoring the changing conditions. Any watershed condition updates will be released by your Conservation Authority.

Haliburton and Northern Areas

Most lakes are near long term average water levels. Levels continue to decline at a steady rate due to the active drawdown and should be expected to continue based on the current forecast.
