Water Level Management on the Trent Severn Reservoirs – New Videos

video screenshot

Catchacoma Lake is one of the six lakes that make up the Mississagua chain of lakes controlled by the Mississagua dam. Of the 35 reservoirs in the Trent-Severn Waterway system ours is the largest.

We are glad to be able to introduce you to two new videos which help explain the operation of the TSW system and also help you assess your shoreline regarding possible impacts from extreme high and low water levels.


Through the Cavendish Community Ratepayers Association (CCRAI)  our Lake Association is associated with the Coalition for Equitable Water Flow (CEWF), a local volunteer organization that works closely with the Trent Severn Waterway (TSW) in representing property owners on the reservoir system.

CEWF has completed two videos and a worksheet geared to help you better understand how the reservoir system works, and better prepare for extreme water levels. The first video explains the operation of the TSW and the second discusses what you can do to help protect your waterfront. This second video is accompanied by a worksheet with additional information and helpful links.

To access the videos, visit cewf.ca, click on EXTREME WATER LEVELS >> WHAT YOU CAN DO in the right margin.

If you don’t already subscribe to the CEWF e-lerts about important water level news, you can do that on the website too!
