Staff with the Lake of the Woods Control Board say water levels on Lake of the Woods near Minaki are set to return to ‘normal’ levels for this time of the year.

This comes as the lake has dropped by about 3 inches over the past week, and two outflow decreases are scheduled for today and Tuesday.

Levels along the Winnipeg River are expected to drop with each flow change by roughly 8” below the Norman Dam and 5” above the Dalles, but staff say levels at Minaki will no longer be affected by the changes and will return to normal levels.

Elsewhere, levels on Lac Seul declined by 1” over the past week and are expected to remain stable.
