The Trent Severn Waterway has issued a Public Safety Notice for water levels and increased flows in the Muskoka area that are part of the Trent Severn Waterway.

Flows from Lake Simcoe are being maximized in order to address higher than normal water levels caused by the recent precipitation. 

Parks Canada says ice break up may occur due to increased stream flows with the potential for ice jams and related flooding.

The Town of Gravenhurst is encouraging residents and visitors to be extremely diligent when venturing near water and streams as well as travelling along roads in low lying areas.
