Water quality is extremely important to Muskokans and it is the reason that many people and families live, play and work in this area.
The District of Muskoka has a long standing and multi-pronged program to work with other partners from across the region and beyond to protect water quality. One of those initiatives is the Lake System Health program. This program involves water quality modelling and monitoring that helps inform planning policies which guide how development is undertaken around lakes and rivers.
The water quality model was recently reviewed by a renowned Canadian expert consultant. The results of the review and the upcoming changes to planning policy are collectively known as the Water Quality Model and Policy Review. If you live on a lake or river or enjoy the beautiful waterways in Muskoka, you may be interested in this project!
We invite you to be part of the process. Use this page as your one-stop for information about the Water Quality Model and Policy Review. Learn more about the following:
