Since the water started coming up Nipissing is up over 47" from the low point. That said the level is in the ball park of previous years. They had started reducing the flow down the French River before the rains came but it is up around 520 cubic meters / second now.

The data on the charts is recorded Monday's at noon and comes from a government web site.

The level is measured in meters above sea level.

I just checked the level again and the lake is up another 7.5" since Monday at noon. 54.5" since April 3rd. Hopefully things start leveling off or there will be damage again. There is likely damage down the French River already.

Just came back from the lake. Nothing out of the norm.
