The rapid melt combined with rain this past week have sent water levels up by about .3 m or 13″. This is the expected peak time for water levels but they are currently about 10 cm over the desired high. Most of the snow is now gone so with several sunny days ahead hopefully the levels will quickly drop back to normal and melt the rest of the ice away too.
MNR&F regulates the water levels on Otter Lake via the dam on Little Otter. For more info check out the link to the MNR&F monitoring site below.
Happy Earth Day!
