Here is an interesting flowchart showing how all the TSW lakes are connected. Note that area lakes Jack, Anstruther, and Eels are all TSW reservoir lakes. It is true that Chandos Lake flows into the Crowe River, and that the Crowe River eventually enters the Trent River near Campbellford. There is a dam on theContinue reading “Trent River Watershed Flow Chart”
Iain Gorman forwarded me some correspondence he received regarding low lake levels in the region. It is duplicated below, in Italics, First though, an explainer….
Cathy Burgess reports that the official date for Ice out in 2021 is April 9. The winner of her contest is Brian McKinlay. I understand his prize is some very old ice cubes from the last ice of 2006, which pair very nicely with 15 year old Single Malt Scotch. A new graph has beenContinue reading “Ice Out Winter 20/21”
The following is a post to the CLPOA facebook page…. Following up on Iain’s post of April 2, 2021 where he reports that the flow along Flat Creek is into the lake: –It seems as of April 3, the reverse flow has “reversed” and is back to a normal outflow from the lake. On MarchContinue reading “Flat Creek returns to normal flow out of Chandos April 3, 2021”
From March 25 to March 30 Chandos has risen 7″. As reported earlier, water is flowing in from Flat Creek. It is still in reverse mode today, although it was a bit hard to tell as the wind was going straight north, thereby opposing the flow coming south, which created surface wavelets that appeared toContinue reading “Chandos is rising!”
Just north of Glen Alda on the Crowe River, Environment Canada operates a Water monitoring Station 02HK005. The results are available in real time on line. Here is a typical graph for the last 15 days: (see https://wateroffice.ec.gc.ca/report/real_time_e.html?stn=02HK005&mode=Graph&startDate=2021-03-15&endDate=2021-03-29&prm1=46&y1Max=&y1Min=&prm2=47&y2Max=&y2Min=) It is obvious that the flow and level have significantly increased in the last couple of days.Continue reading “Environment Canada Gauge Real time Data”
Hi all, Iain Gorman reports that the water flow at the culverts has now reversed, thus there is a net flow into Chandos, which will make the level of the lake start to rise. This means that the level of the Crowe River at the confluence with Flat Creek is higher than the level ofContinue reading “Flat Creek has started to reverse!”
I have started to monitor the flows and levels in our area. It seems that the melt is occurring later than last year. As of March 25, 2021 the water flow (cubic metres/sec) at the Environment Canada Glen Alda Station is about 8 m3/s, whereas last year about this time it was twice that. ThisContinue reading “Spring Melt 2021”

Every Year Cathy Burgess runs an Ice-Out prediction contest for some kind of prize. I don’t know what it is, or if it’s worth the effort, because I’ve never won. However, if you have a ouija board or a 6th sense foretelling capability, or just want to join the fun, you might want to enter.Continue reading “Ice out Predictions”
