Dear Mr. Rousseau,
Thank you for taking the time to email us with the issues that you have raised. The improvement to reservoir levels from the recent rain exceeded expectations and is very encouraging. We’re monitoring and modelling the revised supply conditions carefully and expect to provide a revised guidance following the Labour Day weekend. We’ve seen substantial improvements in reservoir levels last week – up from 53% on Monday morning August 31st to 60% on Tuesday morning September 1st.
