For safety reasons, boat launch availability is still limited. The Secondary Boat Launch in Cache Bay and the launch at Minnehaha Bay remain available for the public. Boaters are urged to navigate respectfully to limit wake and to be cautious of floating debris.
The Municipality will continue to provide support to affected residences and will monitor levels closely. Emergency Services and Operations Crews will continue to patrol and assess the conditions of roads.
