Watch For Floating Docks, Lounge Chairs, Debris On Area Lakes (Aids To Navigation May Also Be Off Track)

Conservation authorities are warning boats and other vessels on Trent Severn waterways and lakes to be extra careful as due to the continued high water levels and flows, aids to navigation may be off station.

In addition, while water levels are starting to recede, there is a lot of debris including docks, lounge chairs, tires and other cottage stuff floating on area lakes that boaters should be watch for. Cottagers are advised to check on their docks and other waterfront structures, and secure everything as best they can.

The water is expected to go down about an inch a day, and cottagers will hopefully be able to sit on their docks at happy hour by the long weekend. If not, it might be sad hour instead.
