Re:  2019 Spring Freshet - Recovery and Clean-up

A short note on the 2019 spring flood.  First, on behalf of the SLCO Board, I hope you have not been personally affected by this year’s spring run-off and flood.  We recognize many residents in Muskoka have suffered damage to their property.

We have received a communication from the Town of Huntsville that they asked us to share.  They are advising that collecting and removing the debris in the lakes and rivers will be a key focus for the Town.  It is their hope that they can partner with the Lake Associations to finalize an approach for watershed clean-up.  It is the Town’s goal to reach out to organizations shortly so they can begin these discussions.  In the interim, they have asked lake associations to share the following information with their membership:

  • The Town of Huntsville will be working with the lake associations to collect & remove debris from the lakes and rivers
  • Residents are encouraged to not try and retrieve floating items at this time
  • Should you see a large item (e.g. larger than a Muskoka chair) floating in our watershed, please call 705-789-6421 ext. 0 and the town will assist with securing it until such time as it can be collected

If you have any questions, please contact Denise Corry (Chief Administrative Officer, Town of Huntsville).  Her contact details are:

Ms. Denise Corry 

37 Main Street East

(705) 789-1751 ext 2356 | 1-888-696-4255 ext 2356


Thank you for your assistance.
