Lake level increasing, but still low

Photos of Lesser Slave Lake from the lake access west of the Boreal Centre for Bird Conservation on the east shore a month apart.
This one is fromSaturday, April 27, 2024. The view is from behind a row of driftwood, which may have been made by the 2018 and 2019 and other floods. The water line is quite far away with a gravel bar out into the water. There is a little bit of floating ice.
Lesser Slave Lake on Saturday, May 25. The gravel bar is basically gone.
On May 25 at 8:30 a.m. rivers.alberta.ca listed the level where Lesser Slave Lake drains into Lesser Slave River at 576.046 m.
In April, the Alberta Environment and Park’s level gauge listed the lake level at 575.85 m, says a report on water conservation in the Town of Slave Lake May 21, 2024 council meeting agenda.
The difference was an increase of about 0.194 metres (7.64 inches).
