The MNRF crew unpinned the dam and took a log out of Muldrew Lake dam following the severe thunderstorm on Wednesday. Muldrew Lake rose 30cm overnight as a result of the 100+mm of rain that was received in the area on Tuesday. We will monitor lake levels and will return the log and re-pin them back down when levels are back to where they are supposed to be. Its really unfortunate that we received a storm like that, given the weather network was only calling for 15-20mm. They were way off this time and a lot of the lakes saw a large increase as a result. Muldrew Lake should react fairly quickly to the log operation so you should see some relief soon.
