Low Water Conditions
In partnership with the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry, we help coordinate and support the local response in the event of a drought.
We monitor local water levels and precipitation and participate in a water response team consisting of representatives from the province, municipalities, conservation authorities, local water users and interest groups.
Low Water Conditions: Normal
Rainfall and snow totals increased in mid-late December 2022 and January 2023.
On January 9, 2023, CVC downgraded The Level 2 Low Water Condition to a Level 1 Low Water Condition.
CVC cancelled Level 1 Low Water Conditions and confirmed Normal Water Conditions on February 6, 2023.
