Parks Canada Advises High Water Levels Making The Trent Severn Waterway Non-Navigable During Certain Hours

KAWARTHA LAKES-Parks Canada advises the public to expect higher than normal water levels and flows during navigation hours and increased flows outside of navigation hours across the entire navigable route of the Trent-Severn Waterway as of today (July 22, 2021) until further notice.

 The higher than normal water levels and flows during navigation hours are due to the high amounts of precipitation received over the past three weeks across the system according to officials.

The increased flows overnight are the result of water management dam adjustments to address the higher than normal water levels caused by the recent precipitation. The public should consider these overnight flows as non-navigable. In addition, overnight mooring at Lock 19 – Scotts Mills will be suspended until further notice.

Residents and visitors should exercise extreme caution around and on the water.
