We would like to inform all residents that based on the spring runoff forecast provided by the Province, the City of Morden is moving its drought response level to Moderate.
Based on the preliminary forecast provided by the Province, it is expected that due to the higher than normal precipitation for this time of the year (only exceeded three times in the past 40 years) and normal soil moisture, the lake level will rise to the spillway level. Depending on precipitation, spring runoff and snowmelt rate there might be significant overflow from the lake.
With Province having 90% confidence in these projections, we would like to remain cautious and ask residents to maintain their water conservation efforts throughout the following months as we gradually roll back to normal levels.
Lastly, we would like to thank all residents who took part in our #SaveWaterMorden conservation campaign. Without your efforts, we could have been in a far worst situation.
