Due to high water levels and flows, Parks Canada has expanded the partial closure of navigation to include Lock 1 – Trenton through Lock 18 – Hastings starting Monday, June 20, 2022, until further notice. Inbound vessel traffic will be advised that entry at Lock 1 – Trenton will be closed until further notice.
Currently, Locks 19 – Scotts Mills and Locks 22 – Nassau through Lock 27 – Young’s Point are currently closed to navigation as of Friday, June 17, 2022 until further notice.
Over the past 20 days the Trent-Severn’s watersheds have received significant amounts of precipitation, the equivalent of 100 – 200% above the normal amount expected for this time. Residents and visitors should exercise extreme caution around and on the water.
Please see the table below for the most recent description of stations that will be open for navigation as of Monday, June 20, 2022. Updates will be provided regularly and communicated widely.
This partial closure will protect boater safety, and help to prevent shoreline erosion and property damage experienced by local residents and businesses. All boaters are strongly encouraged to lower their speeds and watch their wake.
Parks Canada will continue to work diligently to re-open the entire system for navigation and will open individual lock stations in stages as soon as it safe to do so.
