Gauge Description:There's a fall drawdown out of Canada "Lake." That's when this liddle honey runs.
The drawdown begins on November 15 of every year except leap years. On leap years, they do a weekend drawdown on Oct. 15 to allow the landowners along the "lake" to do maintenance on their docks.
Therefore, the release will begin on Nov. 15 of this year (2007). The dam is closed again on May 15, or at ice-out.
After the first couple days of drawdown, the river level becomes rain-dependent until Spring.
