Norman Dam June 2022 (Adam Riley / Acadia Broadcasting)

Area lake outflows to decrease

The lack of rain in parts of the region is having an effect on area lakes and rivers, especially in the Kenora area.

As a result the Lake of the Woods Control Board will be reducing outflows at the Norman Dam, dropping levels below it by 11 centimetres starting Monday.

This will result in a 5 centimetre difference above the Dalles and there will be no change in the Minaki area.

However, to the East its a bit of a different story, the Secretariat says Lac Seul has increased by 3 centimetres over the past week and is expected to increase further.

But it notes there will be a temporary outage at the Ear Falls and Manitou Falls damns, between Saturday and Monday, resulting in a temporary decrease in outflows during the outage.
