Water Levels

The “lakes” enjoyed by leaseholders and the public are actually reservoirs engineered and constructed more than 100 years ago and still used today in the production of clean, renewable hydropower. Because they are reservoirs whose primary purpose is electric power generation, water levels will fluctuate.

Up-to-date water levels and flows, as well as information about the Island Lake Reservoir Technical Committee and Thomson Dam Recreational Release dates can be found here.
