Low Water Level Monitoring

Lake Simcoe Conservation Authority issues three levels of messages for low-water situations to ensure municipalities and watershed residents are prepared in the event of low water conditions. Depending on the water level, LSRCA may issue one of the following statements: 

Level 1: The first indication of a potential water supply problem, managed through water conservation.
