Are the results of this effort published anywhere for public review? Living on Long Pond I can usually access Ontario from Spring until Fall when the water drops. This year I can't even launch from my slip due to low water levels. Does anyone have any information on water levels this year? I've heard that the low levels are not always necessarily due to low rainfall/snow melt. Facts only not rumors please; those I've heard.

Thanks for the links. I now understand the governing principles of Ontario's water level management however I am still at a loss as to this years current low level.

Wes - The committee makes their decisions 2-3 months in advance. They thought we'd get a average winter with average run off so they kept the outflow up. Winter snows ended real early and it's been a pretty dry spring.

i.e. the committee F'd up - they should'a read the Farmers Almanac.
