2017 Generated Waste Reduced By 51 Tonnes

Date Posted: March 17, 2017

More good news. Peterborough County has provided us with our 2017 February Waste statistics.

Comparing February 2016 to February 2017, Trent Lakes reduced waste generation by 30 tonnes!

That means Trent Lakes has reduced their waste generation by 51 tonnes in 2017 (which is just over half of the reduction that occurred in total last year) and last year we were the biggest waste reducers of all the Townships in Peterborough County.

We are so proud of our residents for your cooperation and support and our employees. We’re doing this together and it is having a substantial effect.

Trent Severn Waterway Community Update – Buckhorn Lock 31

Date Posted:

Parks Canada Construction Projects
Buckhorn Lock 31 Masonry and Concrete Rehab
Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site

The Trent-Severn Waterway is an important part of both the local tourism economy and quality of life for residents in communities along its length. Investments toward improvements in Trent-Severn Waterway infrastructure, such as the over $600 million announced by the Government of Canada in 2015 and 2016, are necessary in ensuring the structural integrity and safe operability of the infrastructure for future generations.

Ongoing work at Buckhorn Lock 31 – a masonry lock and one of the busiest stations on the Trent-Severn Waterway – is a part of this historic infrastructure re-investment. Over the winter months contractors have been working on the upstream and downstream approach walls; removing grout and repointing, and repairing or replacing stones as required. In addition to masonry work, lock gates are in the process of being sandblasted, primed and painted. In order to undertake masonry and painting work during the winter, work areas are covered to create a temporary weather enclosure. The enclosure is heated to create a work space that maintains temperatures to allow mortar, grout, and paint to cure.

A coffer logs section with a steel insert is installed into the “gains” by crane above a lock on the Trent-Severn Waterway

Keeping the Work Site Dry
Not unlike other Trent-Severn construction projects, the work at this site has been staged in a manner that accommodates specific constraints due to being in an aquatic environment. Contractors are now in the process of removing the cofferdams that have kept water out of the work site. These cofferdams must be removed by mid-March so that there is no in-water work taking place during the environmentally sensitive spring fish spawning season. The cofferdams were positioned in a way that would allow dry access to the upstream and downstream approach walls. The work site will now shrink and the area within the lock itself will be the focus of the remaining work. The function of keeping this area dry will be served by logs placed in “gains” near the lock gates: pre-existing indentations in the concrete that are used to assist in de-watering the lock for the regular maintenance program (pictured, “gains” and coffer log installation at Lock 39)

The specific and stringent ways in which Parks Canada undertakes construction and maintenance projects re-enforce our role as stewards of Canada’s natural and cultural resources. Further, undertaking the rehabilitation project at Buckhorn during the winter and shoulder seasons only, ensures that we’re able to welcome visitors to the Trent-Severn Waterway during the navigation season and contribute to the thriving tourism economy in this area. Join us on the water this year as we celebrate Canada 150 with free lockage!

Masonry at Buckhorn Lock 31 has been “raked”. The concrete cap of the lock wall can be seen.

Watershed Conditions – Burnt River Watershed

Date Posted: March 14, 2017

Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry Bullentin

Watershed Conditions Statement – Flood Outlook
Bancroft District – Burnt River Watershed
Tuesday March 14, 2017, 3:00 pm

News

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry – Bancroft District is advising area residents that a Watershed Conditions Statement – Flood Outlook is in effect in the Burnt River watershed, which includes the Drag and Irondale Rivers.

Residents of the Burnt River Watershed should keep a close watch on conditions, regularly check for updated messages and exercise caution near fast-moving rivers and streams. Residents who have a historic susceptibility to flooding should take appropriate precautions to protect their property, such as ensuring sump pumps are functioning and securing items that may float away as water levels rise.

A Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety, issued March 10, remains in effect for all of MNRF Bancroft District (expires 03/17/2017 3:00 PM).

MNRF is closely monitoring the weather and developing watershed conditions. Further updates will be issued as appropriate.

Technical Information:

Description of Weather System
This message is being sent on the basis of information received from MNRF – Surface Water Monitoring Centre, MNRF – Aviation Forest Fire and Emergency Management Services, Ontario Power Generation and Environment Canada.

Over the next four days, more seasonal temperatures are expected with little melting that would contribute to increased water levels. There is little precipitation forecasted over this period.

Description of Current Conditions

Reservoirs in the district are currently at normal levels for this time of year. Water flows in larger rivers remain elevated. The MNRF and the Trent-Severn Waterway (TSW) continue to closely monitor local lakes and rivers.

Much of Bancroft District remains blanketed by a snow pack containing average water content, but continued snowmelt is not expected over the coming week with colder, more seasonal temperatures.

An ice jam is developing on the Burnt River north of Cameron Lake, which may contribute to increases in water levels throughout the Burnt River watershed. MNRF will monitor water levels for potential impacts from the ice jam.

The MNRF is in regular communication with partner agencies and water control structure operators, including Conservation Authorities, Ontario Power Generation (OPG), Bracebridge Generation and the TSW.

Expiry Date:

This message will expire on 03/17/2017 3:00 PM

Otonabee Conservation Water Safety Conditions Statement

Date Posted: March 10, 2017

The Otonabee Region Conservation Authority (ORCA) advises municipalities and the public that a Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety is now in effect for the entire watershed region. The information in this statement is based on observations by ORCA combined with information from our partners including Environment and Climate Change Canada, Water Survey of Canada, Parks Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.

Above normal temperatures during recent weeks, combined with rainfall, has translated to water levels and flows that are above normal for this time of year, but in the absence of a large snowpack or large rainfall events there has, so far, been only nuisance flooding, meaning that water in places has left the normal confines of the channel and is flooding low-lying lands, but road access remains available and no structures have been flooded.

With the recent return to more seasonal-like weather, water levels and flows are expected to remain steady. That said, Stony/Clear Lake, the Otonabee River, Little Lake and Rice Lake, will experience a slow increase in water levels and flows, but water levels and flows will remain below the flood warning stage.

The public is advised to avoid all activities near lakes, rivers, stream, creeks and wetlands as high water levels and flows as well as slippery streambanks are extremely hazardous.

The Otonabee Region Conservation Authority is tracking the weather and watershed conditions to detect any change that could increase water levels/flows and extent of flooding, and keeping apprised the local Community Emergency Management Coordinators, as well as the provincial and federal governments.

If you experience a flood emergency, please call 911 immediately.

This Watershed Conditions Statement – Water Safety will remain in effect until further notice.

Kawartha Conservation – Water Safety Conditions Statement

Date Posted: February 28, 2017

WATERSHED CONDITIONS STATEMENT – WATER SAFETY
DATE: February 28, 2017
TIME: 2:00 pm

Message sent on the basis of information received from:

  • Kawartha Conservation Flood Forecasting Network
  • Ministry of Natural Resources – Surface Water Monitoring Centre
  • Environment Canada
  • Trent-Severn Waterway

Environment Canada is forecasting another low-pressure system to move into southern Ontario, including Kawartha Conservation watershed, this evening. Rain is expected to start overnight with total rainfall amounts of 20 to 30mm, which will taper off by Wednesday morning as the storm moves out of the region. Higher amounts may occur in localized areas as a result of thunderstorm activity. Air temperature is expected to stay above seasonal, reaching 14°C tomorrow.

Water levels and flows in local watercourses are elevated in response to the snowmelt and precipitation which occurred over the past weekend. Ground conditions are saturated. Snow cover has diminished considerably, especially at the southern portion of the watershed but pockets of snow still observed in shaded and forested areas.

Under these watershed conditions the forecasted rainfall combined with melting of the remnants of snow and saturated soils will result in increased runoff. While no major flooding is anticipated at this time, water levels and flows in local rivers and streams will continue to demonstrate higher and faster flows. Water accumulation may occur in low-lying areas, road ditches, and areas with poor drainage. All local watercourses should be considered extremely dangerous.

Kawartha Conservation is warning all residents to stay away from all water bodies, as well as water structures such as bridges, culverts, and dams. Children should be warned of dangerous conditions and caregivers should maintain a close watch on children who are outside.

Trent-Severn waterway officials are monitoring this current situation closely and will be adjusting dam settings throughout the system when the situation warrants. Staff from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry are monitoring water levels of Burnt and Gull Rivers.

Municipalities are advised to monitor areas known for minor flooding and be prepared to respond to high water situations as they occur. As local municipalities are first to respond to and assist with flood emergencies, residents are advised to contact their municipalities should a flood threat develop.

This Watershed Conditions Statement-Water Safety will be in effect until Thursday, March 2nd, 2017. Kawartha Conservation will continue monitoring local watercourses and notify the public and municipalities within its watershed jurisdiction of any changes. If you are aware of or have concerns about flooding, please contact Kawartha Conservation at 705.328.2271 or 705.344.0155 after hours.
