Water Levels(Apr 23/19) Parks Canada in their conference call today with Tay Net members advises that approximately 26 mm of rain is expected on the Tay water shed from April 23 to April 27, most of which will fall in the next 24 hours. Bobs Lake water levels have continued to increase due to inflows from the recent rain. The very high water flow rate over the dam has not dropped. Today it is at 12.6 cms (cubic metres per second) with the historic average closer to 6.5 cms. PC has not changed the dam level for several days. The coming spike in water inflow to Bobs will add to this level. Flood conditions are possible.
