Muskoka To-DAILY

MNRF reminds everyone to beware of water conditions this weekend with more rain

PARRY SOUND-MUSKOKA — The MNRF has issued a Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety bulletin early Friday afternoon for the District Municipality of Muskoka.

They warn residents in the Parry Sound-Muskoka area to keep a close watch on conditions and exercise caution around water bodies as flows and levels within rivers and streams remain higher than normal for this time of year.

MNRF also advises extreme caution when using forest access roads for outdoor activities, as many are seasonally inundated with water, prone to washouts and may be impassible due to current water levels.

MNRF is closely monitoring the weather and developing watershed conditions.

They say further updates will be issued as appropriate.
