Lake of the Woods dropped by another 9 cm (3 in) over the past week to an average level of 323.64 m (1061.8 ft), which is over the 95th percentile level for this time of year.

The Lake of the Woods Control Board says the Kenora Dams remain fully open and they anticipate lake levels to drop by 9 to 11 cm (3 to 4 in) over the next week.

With the drop in lake levels, the level of the Winnipeg River will also continue to decline. The Control Board says the Winnipeg River between Kenora and Minaki is expected to gradually fall between 5 to 8 cm (2 to 3 in) over the next week as the Lake of the Woods level falls.
