    High danger of fire. Only absolutely necessary municipally permitted activities should be carried out. However, it is recommended that no burning should occur. A total fire ban may be in place. Extreme caution must be taken with all open flames. Small fires are permitted in most rural areas of Muskoka keeping in mind that no daytime burning is allowed. You must have adequate tools and water to extinguish the fire if the need arises and you must be with your fire at all times.

    The garbage bins at Rockhaven have been temporarily removed by the District Municipality of Muskoka.

    The area will be remediated (to prevent draining to the lake) and the bins returned once the work is completed.

    Garbage can be taken to the bins at Dennes Marina. Please be aware and conscientious of the increased volume at Dennes and consider taking garbage directly to the dump.

    As always, non-household garbage must be taken to the dump.

    We will post updates as needed.

    From the District Chair

    As you may be aware, the District of Muskoka surveyed Muskoka’s second home owners in the summer of 2017 in an attempt to get to know you better. The seasonal population is a vital component of Muskoka’s culture, tradition, and economy – given this significance, the District of Muskoka periodically collects information through an anonymous online survey called the Second Home Study. Thanks to the participation of many of your members, we received over 3,400 responses from across Muskoka. This information was compiled and analyzed over the winter, and I am pleased to announce that the Second Home Study was endorsed by District Council on April 16, 2018.

    Executive Summary

    From Matt McNeice, Senior Environmental Officer with the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change:

    The District of Muskoka has been out to look at the location of the bins (garbage and recycling) at Kluey's Bay. The District has been asked to make improvements to the location.

    The owner of the pontoon boat with the construction debris has been contacted and has agreed to address concerns in the next week. He has assumed ownership “for the time being” of the dock loaded with old shingles and will be disposing of same.

    At this point the contamination appears to be oil based, not gas based.
    Analysis by the Ministry is ongoing.

    Additional Note:

    Members of the KLRA Executive are meeting with Town of Gravenhurst Mayor, Paisley Donaldson on Friday (May 4th), and will be discussing these issues with her.

    Matt McNeice, Senior Environmental Officer with the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, visited the site at Klueys Bay this morning (Monday).

    There is no indicator at this time as to the spill's origin. A sample was taken, which will provide more information.

    He moved 3 partially filled 4 litre containers of used oil and 1 old steel gas tank to higher ground.

    The Technical Standards and Safety Authority-Fuel Safety Branch will follow-up regarding the old fuel pump.

    Re: the old barges, the Transport Canada-Marine Safety Branch will be notified.

    The Ministry will be providing the KLRA with further direction.

    The Town of Gravenhurst has also been notified, and a case opened.
