It Appears Lake Ontario Has Reached It's Peak Level For 2021


Recommended Posts

The IJC won't let that new water level go to waste by keeping the lake level up, even if it's just an inch or two. They see it as an opportunity to increase outflows.

 

We've all come to expect nothing else from the IJC.

Yes saw that. Lake rose 2.8 inch in July and now they have increased outflow. We need it to rise a foot+

Was 7620 m3/s.  raised to 7960.  They said lake came up 5 cm.

 

l wonder how long it will take the IJC to drop the lake 5 cm.

Interesting question.  Big-O has aboutn18,960 sq km of surface area so a depth of 5 cm is approx 945,000,000 cu meters.  Current outflow is 7960 cu meter/sec.  so  IF there was no inflow then it'd be gone in 33 hours.  HOWEVER, Niagara is currently inflowing approx 6512 Cu meter/sec.   Hence it'd be down in a little over 7 1/2 days.    

 

HOWEVER ( for 2nd time):  The Genny is currently freaking roaring!  I don't know what any of the other tribs are doing, so it'll probably be a little longer.
