Truckloads of sand and a grader have put Cobourg’s Beach almost back to normal.  There were pools that were getting stagnant but rather than let that become a safety concern, the Parks Department proactively filled them in and ran the grader over them.  On Wednesday, the beach was in use and should be ready to accommodate the large crowds we usually get on July 1st.  See photos below.  Water levels are still at record highs but today at noon Cobourg’s water level was at 1.55m which is 12 cm or 4.7 inches below the peak.

Water levels are still very high compared to previous years but they are slowly dropping – see the graph below.  The graph shows that we are still 80cm (31”) higher than normal but the lake is expected to drop about 20cm (8”) per month.

Of course temperatures also have to climb to get the crowds and right now, forecast temperatures are not more than about 25°C for the weekend.
