Kushog Lake Water Control Parameters
Water Level Forecast for Oct 2 - 16, 2017:
Kushog Lake target drawdown: 35.2 cm or about 14 inches.
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.
The forecasted weather for this week calls for approximately 15 to 20 mm of rainfall across the Trent River and Severn River watersheds. The seasonal forecast suggests above normal temperatures and normal precipitation from October until December for the Trent Severn Waterway.
Winter set is achieved every year by the beginning of October to facilitate the Lake Trout spawn. Winter set has been reached at all dams with the exception of Horseshoe. The Gull River reservoirs are now 51% full.
For what is anticipated to be the final water level forecast of the season, covering Oct 2 - Oct 16, 2017, Kushog Lake is predicted to drop 35.2 cm or about 14 inches bringing the lake down to the winter set level of 1.535 metres or 5 feet.
