Parks Canada advises that the Trent- Severn Waterway Water Management Team will be flowing water through Lock 42 Couchiching in order to speed up the draw down on Lake Simcoe.
This action will soften the ice and increase water flows in the area. Extreme caution is advised for those in the immediate vicinity upstream and downstream of Lock 42 Couchiching.
Parks Canada would like to thank area residents and visitors for their co-operation in our efforts to promote a safe environment in this area.
