Hatzic Lake Level
Hatzic Lake level is governed by the natural flow of the water from the upper streams and creeks and the level of the Fraser River.
When the Fraser River level drops the water from the lake flows naturally through the flap gates into the Fraser River. It is normal to see exposed lake bed during the months September to May every year. The lake will have minor fluctuations of water during the winter months depending on the amount of heavy rain, snow etc. that is received over a short period of time.
During the Freshet (spring thaw usually beginning of May) when the Fraser River rises due to melting snow from the Interior Rivers the flap gates are forced closed and incoming water from the valley creeks and streams above the lake area remains in the lake. The pumps are used to pump water from the lake when the lake level becomes too high.
August 2022 – 2022 STU Approval-DAID has received the 2022 STU (Short Term Use approval). The slide gates can be activated to retain water level in Hatzic Lake until September 6, 2022. PLEASE NOTE: Remove your water craft from Hatzic Lake by Tuesday, September 6, 2022 unless you are able to monitor the lake level on a daily basis.
