Ministry of Environment monitoring cleanup following minor diesel spill in waters near Gravenhurst

Don't drink any water with a sheen to it

If your drinking water supply draws from South Beaver Creek, Sparrow Lake, or McLean’s Bay in the Washago to Gravenhurst areas, give your water a second glance before consuming.

The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit says a small diesel spill in the area may have impacted private drinking water supplies in these bodies of water. If the water has a sheen to it, don’t drink.

The Ministry of Environment is working on cleanup efforts.
