The fact is Lake Simcoe water levels are not “controlled”, they are “managed” with the understanding that climate conditions are complex and can be unpredictable at times. Here are some facts that provide a better understanding of Lake Simcoe water levels and how they are managed.

Climate Watch Shorts: Measuring changes in Lake Simcoe

Interested in learning how climate change and salt are affecting Lake Simcoe? View TVO's recent Climate Watch Short highlighting the changes in Lake Simcoe. 

Presentation by Dr. Blair Feltmate, Head, Intact Centre on Climate Adaptation, University of Waterloo
There is no denying that extreme weather events are on the rise – from floods, to droughts, fire, wind and hail. Initially, it was the Property & Casualty insurers that seemed vulnerable to extreme weather impacts, while other business sectors remained immune – this is clearly no longer the case.  The presentation will highlight how all industry sectors are vulnerable to the "new normal" of extreme weather, and more importantly, what they can do to mitigate risk and maximize opportunity.
