Local lakes and rivers are higher than normal causing unsafe conditions.

The Ministry of Natural Resources has issued a Watershed Conditions Statement because of water safety for all watersheds in the Districts of Parry Sound, Muskoka, and a portion of the County of Haliburton.

Water levels and flows in local lakes and rivers have been higher than what is normally expected this time of year due to the amount of rain received over the past few months across the region.
