The District's Water and Wastewater division is broken down into three service areas:
BRACEBRIDGE, GRAVENHURST, HUNTSVILLE, BALA,

In order to improve the quality and service of the water system, Muskoka Public Works Department will be conducting a hydrant and watermain flushing program from April 10, 2017 to June 30, 2017. This procedure will help remove accumulated rust from the mains and could result in discoloration of the water.
It is recommended that all customers check their water for rust prior to use each day as discoloration of laundry, etc. could occur. If you have any problems or need assistance in this regard please call us at 705-645-6764, or 1-800-281-3483. Thank you for your co-operation.
