Posted: 2019-05-15 10:06:13 By: hbr

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry released an updated statement reminding residents that a flood warning remains in effect for the Muskoka River, French River and Lower Pickerel River Watersheds.

The MNRF say lake levels and river flows are continuing their downward trends.  MNRF has continued to put stoplogs in at dams to help reduce flows to flood impacted areas. Areas that are experiencing flooding should continue to see levels recede as the effects of logging in the upper watersheds continue to take effect in the downstream watersheds.
