Water Levels Up

Water levels are up at area water.

The International Joint Commission says Rainy Lake has risen about 30 centimetres over the past week, putting its well over the normal levels for this time of year.

The higher level is partly due to the opening of dams at Namakan Lake which are letting water through at maximum levels.

Meantime, Rainy River has risen over 3 metres since April.
