The following information is provided to those who have expressed an interest in the reservoir level and discharge rate at Duncan Dam. Please note that this forecast is subject to change if there are significant changes in the projected weather pattern. 

The flows on the Duncan River at the Lardeau Confluence (DRL) are currently at approximately 240 m3/s (8,500 cfs). We expect flows to continue to increase over the next several days due to increasing snowmelts.

Depending on the Lardeau River discharge, flows at DRL could potentially reach 350 m3/s (12,400 cfs) by Monday, May 18. 

We will be reducing flows from Duncan Reservoir to manage these potential high flows.
