High Water Level

print-logo May 01, 2017

The Municipality of Port Hope continues to monitor the higher than average water levels in Lake Ontario and the impacts to waterfront public and recreational space. As a result of impacts due to high water levels and wave actions, the following Municipal recreational spaces are closed for public use and access.

1. The wooden Boardwalk on the east side of the Ganaraska River from the Fish cleaning station to just north of the marina
2. The waterfront trail from the Lake Street parking lot entering the Sculthorpe Marsh to the parking area at Gage’s creek

The public is advised not to enter these areas until such time as deemed safe to do so by the municipality. Staff will continue to monitor all areas along the waterfront to ensure public areas remain safe for public use. Areas that have experienced damage due to high water levels will be repaired once water levels recede.
