Lake Levels 

Established Lake Levels 

Portage and Base Line and Horseshoe Lake have legally established lake levels. The lake levels are manually controlled with control structures such as a dam or weir.  A controlled lake level allows for greater aesthetic and recreational value. The cost of maintenance and operation of the lake level and the control structure is shared among properties within the Lake Level District.
