Water levels nearing summer normal

The flood warning has been downgraded and many lakes in the area are nearing normal levels for the summer months. Buckhorn, Chemong, Pigeon, Stony, and Clear Lakes are expected to be navigable today, May 14. The Peterborough Examiner reported, "The water safety advisory remains in place because slippery and unstable banks from the high water levels over the past two months, combined with cold water temperatures, continue to mean potentially dangerous conditions on watercourses and waterbodies in the area." Be safe out there, summer is almost here!

Kawartha Lakes expected to be at navigable levels by Monday

Water levels have returned to summer normal levels on some of the Kawartha Lakes, according to the Otonabee Region Conservation Authority. A flood warning that was issued last month for the Kawartha Lakes and Otonabee River watershed was downgraded on Monday to a water safety watershed conditions statement and that notice was updated on Friday. The Tri-lakes (Buckhorn, Chemong and Pigeon) and the combined lakes of Stoney and Clear lakes are declining too but are still above summer normal levels.
