WINNIPEG — Dry weather this summer has put water levels along the Red River below normal summer operational levels.

Public Services and Procurement Canada says the levels are most impacted between St. Andrews Lock and Dam and the city of Winnipeg, including the Assiniboine River.

Boaters are advised to use extreme caution to avoid hazards such as rocks that would normally be submerged.

“Municipalities and residents are encouraged to monitor these conditions and prepare accordingly,” the PSPC said in a statement.
