Re:  2019 Spring Freshet - Recovery and Clean-up

As communicated in my May 5 note, the Town of Huntsville is moving forward with recovery efforts from the spring freshet, collecting and removing the debris in our lakes and rivers.  The Town has partnered with several lake associations to finalize an approach for watershed clean-up.  Specifically, they have arranged for a dumpster to be placed at each lake for one weekend.  For Skeleton Lake, a dumpster will be located at 180 Camp Newport road on Saturday June 1 & Sunday June 2.  Guidelines for use of the dumpster are as follows:

  • The bin will be an ‘Aces Waste’ dumpster, orange in colour
  • Only man-made, floating items are to be retrieved from the lake and deposited in the dumpster
  • If floating items are too large to be placed in the dumpster, the item is to be placed beside the dumpster (the Town of Huntsville will ensure the items are placed in the dumpster)
  • No trees or natural vegetation, such as foliage or shrubbery shall be deposited in the dumpster
  • No debris collected from the land is to be deposited in the dumpster
  • No household garbage is to be deposited in the dumpster
  • The Town of Huntsville will cover the costs associated with the dumpster

Additionally, if you sustained property damage, supports are currently available as follows:

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