Stay Off The Waterways… For Now

Parks Canada advises against using Lock 42 Couchiching and Lake Simcoe due to the high runoff

Heads up if you’re thinking of using Lock 42 Couchiching or Lake Simcoe.

Parks Canada says water level and flow downstream have been increased in order to maximize the outflows from Simcoe.

The water levels are high and continue to increase due to the high runoff from the recent precipitation.

Trent Severn Waterway is also not yet open for boating and that water levels and flows across the system are high and not suitable for safe boating.
