Locks in Kawartha Lakes to open Friday, others still on hold

The Trent-Severn Waterway has announced that the 2017 Navigation Season will open in stages starting on Friday, May 26th.

Increased precipitation over the past weekend coupled with forecasted rainfall has created the requirement for additional time to reduce water levels and flows to a point that ensures safe boating conditions across the system.

As of May 26th, Lock 28 Burleigh Falls to Lock 42 Couchiching will be open to boat traffic. All other lock stations will be open to land-based visitation but closed to boat traffic.
This staged opening of the Waterway will most importantly protect boater safety, and help to prevent further shoreline erosion and property damage experienced by local residents and businesses.

All visitors are encouraged to always exercise caution around water but especially with water flows being unpredictable.
