Dauphin lake has been steadily rising this spring, but according to the province's most recent forecasting, appears to be at its peak. The lake is sitting a full foot above its flood stage according to the province's most recent measurements, which were taken yesterday.
At 858.99 feet, it is also more than four feet above its upper operating range of 854.8, when some low-lying areas begin to see flooding. According to the province's forecast, the lake should be at its peak and slowly begin to come down, although more precipitation in the forecast could change that.
Other lakes in the area are in a different situation, however, as Lake Manitoba is sitting within its operating range and more than three feet below its flood stage. Lake Winnipegosis has fluctuated quite a bit this spring but hit its peak so far this year on May 20th, and is over a foot below where it was that day.
