Water levels are expected to remain near seasonal highs over the next several weeks and Quinte Conservation says the rate of decline will depend largely on rainfall.

Lake Ontario water levels have been declining slowly since mid-June and are expected to continue their seasonal decline into the fall. Lake Ontario’s outflows are expected to remain high well into the fall.

“Recently, lake evaporation has started to increase; this is expected to continue for several weeks,” said Christine McClure, water resources manager with Quinte Conservation.

“The peak Lake Ontario water level of 75.92 metres was last recorded on June 15th. Lake Ontario’s water level is no longer at a record high; however, it still remains above 2017 levels for this time of year. Lake Ontario levels remain below the current record for this time of year which was set in 1947.”
