High water level and erosion in Ajax and Oshawa

Lake Front Park (Oshawa)

Lake Ontario water levels are currently 75.84m, which are the highest water levels recorded since 1918. Current levels are about 11 cm above the record high May monthly mean (75.73m, set in 1973).
Elevated Lake Ontario water levels are the result of the significant amount of rain received in April and May within the Lake Ontario basin.
