Otonabee Conservation Water Conditions Statement – Water Safety

Date Posted: May 26, 2017

ORCA| Published: MAY 26, 2017

Subject: Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety issued for the Kawartha Lakes, Otonabee River, Rice Lake and Trent River (to Hastings).

 Issued to: Municipalities of Selwyn (SEL), Douro-Dummer (DD), Asphodel-Norwood (AN), Otonabee-South Monaghan (OSM), Cavan Monaghan (CM), City of Kawartha Lakes (CKL), City of Peterborough (CP) and Trent Hills (TH), as well as ORCA’s other partners in emergency flood management.

A Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety is issued when conditions, such as high flows and unsafe banks, pose a serious safety risk to recreational users such as anglers, canoeists and hikers. Information contained in this message is based on observations of the ORCA with input from our partners, including Environment and Climate Change Canada, Water Survey of Canada, Parks Canada – Ontario Waterways Unit, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and municipal Community Emergency Management Co-ordinators.

Water levels and flows continue to be above-normal for this time of year along the Trent-Severn Waterway. In addition, water temperatures remain quite cold. As a result, unsafe conditions persist on Buckhorn, Chemong, Pigeon, Lower Buckhorn, Lovesick, Stony, Clear, Katchewanooka and Rice Lakes, as well as the Otonabee River and Trent River (to Hastings). Therefore, the ORCA strongly advises area residents and visitors not to engage in water-based activities / recreation on the above-noted lakes and rivers until such time as conditions improve, which is expected to take approximately another one week. In addition, because of shoreline erosion leading to undercut banks, everyone is also advised to keep SAFE by Staying Away From the Edge of these waterbodies / watercourses.  Furthermore, dams, culverts and other water control / water conveyance structures are to be avoided at all times.

To report a flood in your area, call the Flood Watch Hotline – 705-745-5791, ext. 228, or e-mail: orcafloodduty@otonabee.com. If you experience a flood emergency, call 911 immediately.

This Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety message will next be up-dated Monday, May 29.

Kawartha Lakes and Rice Lake Water Levels, and Otonabee River Flows

Buckhorn, Chemong and Pigeon Lakes have dropped 27 centimeters from their peak water level (achieved on May 11/12th) to 246.36 meters above sea level (masl). Still, the tri-lakes must drop 28 centimeters more to reach navigation level (i.e., summer level). Lower Buckhorn Lake is currently sitting at 242.86 masl, which means that the lake has dropped 28 centimeters from its peak, and must drop another 12 centimeters to reach its navigation level. Lovesick Lake peaked at 241.66 masl, and since, has dropped 13 centimeters, but still has 5 centimeters more to drop before reaching navigation level. Stony and Clear Lakes have dropped 35 centimeters from their peak water levels to 234.63 masl, with another 29 centimeter drop required to reach navigation level. Lake Katchewanooka currently sits at 232.24 masl, which is 44 centimeters below its peak water level, and 21 centimeters above navigation level. Rice Lake crested on May 15th at 187.33 masl, and has since dropped 32 centimeters, but remains 28 centimeters above navigation level. Meanwhile, flows on the Otonabee River are currently in the 225 to 250 cubic meters per second (m3/sec) range. Flows will remain high until the Kawartha Lakes reach their respective navigation levels, which will occur on or about this coming Friday.  

 The above-noted high water levels and flows continue to result in unsafe conditions. Therefore, the ORCA strongly advises area residents and visitors not to engage in water-based activities / recreation on the Kawartha Lakes, Otonabee River, Rice Lake and Trent River. In addition, everyone is also advised to keep Safe by Staying Away From the Edge of these waterbodies / watercourses.  Furthermore, dams, culverts and other water control / water conveyance structures are to be avoided at all times.

Otonabee Conservation Flood Warning Update for May 18, 2017

Date Posted: May 18, 2017

By ORCA | Published: May 18, 2017

Otonabee Conservation advises that the Flood Warning remains in effect for the Kawartha Lakes, Otonabee River, Rice Lake and the Trent River to Hastings.

The information provided in this Flood Warning Update is based on observations of Otonabee Conservation combined with input from our partners, including Environment and Climate Change Canada, Water Survey of Canada, Parks Canada – Ontario Waterways Unit, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, and municipal Community Emergency Management Co-ordinators.

Water Levels and Flows

Water levels on all of the Kawartha Lakes in the Otonabee Region watershed continue to decline. That is, in the past week, Buckhorn, Chemong, Pigeon, Lower Buckhorn,Lovesick, Stony, Clear and Katchewanooka Lakes have dropped 20 to 25 centimeters below their peak water levels. The Otonabee River has dropped closer to 40 centimeters. Rice Lake and the Trent River (to Hastings) have dropped about 10 centimeters.  

With inflows to the Kawartha Lakes now well below outflows, the total amount of rain forecast to fall in the next 5 days is insufficient to cause a return to rising water levels on area Kawartha Lakes, the Otonabee River, Rice Lake or the Trent River, and therefore, water levels / flows will continue to drop throughout the holiday long-weekend. That said, it is anticipated that it will take another week before high water levels / flows, caused by extreme amounts of precipitation, will recede below flood thresholds.

Keep Safe

High water levels and flows on the Trent-Severn Waterway continue to result in unsafe conditions. Therefore, Otonabee  Conservation strongly urges area residents and visitors not to engage in water-based activities / recreation on the Kawartha Lakes, Otonabee River, Rice Lake and Trent River during this holiday, long-weekend.

In addition, erosion has led to undercut banks in places along the shoreline, and therefore, everyone is also advised to stay away from the edge of waterbodies / watercourses.  Furthermore, dams, culverts and other water control / water conveyance structures are to be avoided at all times.

To report a flood in your area, call the  Flood Watch Hotline – 705-745-5791, ext. 228, or e-mail: orcafloodduty@otonabee.com.

If you experience a flood emergency, call 911 immediately.

This Flood Warning will next be up-dated no later than Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017.

Trent Severn Waterway Opening Delayed to Friday, May 26, 2017

Date Posted: May 17, 2017

Parks Canada Information Bulletin:

High water levels and flows caused by extreme amounts of precipitation have resulted in unsafe boating conditions across both waterways. For safety reasons, Parks Canada has delayed the start of the 2017 navigation season for the Trent-Severn Waterway and Rideau Canal by one week to Friday May 26, 2017.

Until May 26, 2017, the Trent-Severn Waterway and Rideau Canal closed to all boat traffic and all forms of water-based activities are discouraged. This closure will most importantly protect boater safety, and help to prevent further shoreline erosion and property damage experienced by local residents and businesses. During this week, Parks Canada will continue to diligently make adjustments to water flows in order to restore safe conditions in preparation for the navigation season.
The public are welcome to continue to enjoy the canals’ lock stations, which will be fully open to land-based visitors effective May 19, 2017 and lock staff will be on hand to welcome them.
All visitors are encouraged to always exercise caution around water but especially now with elevated water levels and flows.
