Happy Monday everyone, if you've been to the cottage over the last couple of weeks you have noticed that the lake level has come up. I suspect this has been from all the rain over the last two weeks. I have been monitoring the Black River levels from the ministry website(See my April 11 post) and it has gone up and looks to have crested around May 5 or 6.


With this week looking to be sunny and mostly dry, lets hope that this will allow the levels to drop as we head towards the Victoria Day long weekend when many like to put docks in. It will be touch and go depending on where you are and what type of dock you have.


Heading to the dam today to take a few more pics and will post here.


Have a great week.

Hello everyone, as we move into spring and with the snow and ice melts there are water levels rising across the country. If you have been watching the news, you have seen the experience outside of Ottawa.

So far in Southern Ontario, dry conditions during and after the Easter Weekend have prevented any serious impact. Specifically around Lake St John we are impacted with what happens north of us and what that melt does to the Black River. As of Friday April 7, 2023 at the Switch Road dam, the Black River is over two feet higher than the level in Lake St John. Images below taken on Friday April 7 with the lake on the left side of the pictures.


Real time water level of the Black River at Hwy 169 can be viewed at https://wateroffice.ec.gc.ca/report/real_time_e.html?stn=02EC002 with levels dropping as of April 10, 2023 but just minimally.


It will take some time to match the current level of the lake, drop lower, and then reverse to start lowering Lake St John. Best guess is that our level could rise another foot above the April 11 level before that happens. Best guess and thankful that the weather is expected to be dry for the upcoming week
