Dam operations may affect ice conditions

Dam operations will continue at Second Depot Lake in an effort to ensure adequate flood storage for the spring. In addition to Second Lake Dam, Quinte Conservation is operating Bellrock Dam in order to draw down reservoir levels.

Lake levels are currently supporting ice coverage. As levels start to lower in the reservoir, the stability of the ice coverage will decline. Downstream lakes will see an increase in water levels which may affect the strength of the ice.

Quinte Conservation would like to remind the public that the Authority does not monitor ice for thickness or safety.

The public is always encouraged to exercise caution when near or around water. Stream banks may be slippery and treacherous. Water flows and currents may be strong. Dams and other water control structures should be avoided at all times. For more information on dam operations, visit and subscribe to the dam operations newsletter.

Quinte Conservation is a community-based environmental protection agency. It serves 18 municipalities in the watersheds of the Moira, Napanee and Salmon Rivers and Prince Edward County. It provides cost-effective environmental expertise and leadership. Quinte Conservation’s main goal is to create a sustainable ecosystem where people and nature live in harmony.
