Seasonal water level adjustments have begun on managed lakes in Cataraqui Region. With recent rainfall causing higher water flow through some water control structures such as dams, Cataraqui Conservation staff are working to create more capacity for fall rains, and to stabilize water levels prior to winter freeze-up to promote a stable ice surface. Cataraqui Conservation reminds residents to stay back from the water’s edge above and below dams and hydroelectric stations as creek banks and lake shorelines may be slippery, increasing the chance of falling in.
