namakan water level

5 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anybody had a good guess as to how much higher the water level on namakan is this week compared to the last week of september. I've looked at the control board web sites and those graphs look like about 8inches higher. I'm concerned about a floating dock at my place that I pull up on the beach for the winter. I leave about 2 feet of it in the water expecting it to go down not come up this late in the year.

mark23,

I was on the lake the past 2 days - lots and lots of water on Kabetogama...am sure Namakan too. We also had rain last night.

There isn't a lot of places for the water to go right now...Rainy Lake and River are up, I'm sure LOTW is too.

No telling how fast it will drop.

Good Luck.

I was on a couple of sites I watch the water levels on and as far as I can determine it appears to me the lake may only be up 2 or maybe 3 inches since the end of September.

What site were you looking at?

I was on www.lwcb.ca/ and the increments of elevation go a foot at a time so I was just taking a good guess at the inches. That's great for my situtation if it has only been an inch or so. I've also been keeping an eye on pine aires web cam and the water hieght on there dock doesn't seem that extreme.

Here is another site you can reference as well.

We have a large floating dock as well that we string between two points in a fairly secluded area that we let freeze in each year. Been doing this for at least 10-12 years now with no problems. Good luck!
