The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry – Parry Sound District is advising area
residents that a Watershed Conditions Statement - Flood Outlook Bulletin is in effect in the
district until Thursday, January 12, 2023
Residents in Parry Sound District, which includes the District Municipality of Muskoka, the
Territorial District of Parry Sound and a north-west portion in the County of Haliburton,
should exercise caution while around waterbodies and maintain close supervision of
children and pets due to high water levels and river flows in the area.
Any ice on local waterbodies is not safe.
MNRF also advises extreme caution when using forest access roads for outdoor activities
as they may become seasonally inundated with water, are prone to washouts and may
become impassible due to localized flooding.
The ministry is closely monitoring the weather and developing watershed conditions.
Further updates will be issued as appropriate.
