All the feeder lakes were at full capacity at the time when they should have been at their lowest levels. When the snow pack melted and spring rains came there was no place for it to go, therefore creating this unnecessary error for the flood.

To the Editor, The damage which was been caused by recent flooding in Minden Hills and surrounding areas is a result of conscious decision making by the Ministry of Natural Resources/TSW and others associated with the provision of water to the Trent Severn Waterway (TSW).
