We live most of the year in British Columbia and we are water hogs. Because of all the rain it seems we have lots of water and plenty to spare, but in the middle of a warm summer many locations have to go on water rationing. We live in a floating cabin on Powell Lake. Our lake is used for the generation of electricity for the paper mill. It isn’t unusual to see a 15′ range from high to low water. After a good rain the lake can rise rapidly because of the steep mountains. The dam can drain is as fast, or not faster. That always amazes me. The lake is 51 kilometres long and over 1000 feet deep and still the changes can be that dramatic. – Margy
