Lake Ontario Water Levels Expected to be 20” Higher in 2020 – Are You Prepared?

Posted on Thursday January 02, 2020

Did high water levels affect your property in 2017, 2018 or 2019? Are you equipped for even higher water levels in the Spring of 2020? RSVP to the Waterfront Protection Open House to share your stories/photos of your affected property from previous years’ high-water levels and prepare for 2020!


The Town of Greater Napanee, in partnership with Quinte Conservation and Cataraqui Region Authority, will be hosting a Waterfront Protection Open House on Friday, January 24, 2020 beginning at 5:00 p.m. at the South Fredericksburgh Community Hall (2478 County Rd. 8).


The Town wants to hear from you! We need your stories and photos to prepare a submission to the International Joint Commission (IJC) and the Province regarding Plan 2014 and the high-water levels of Lake Ontario. By RSVPing to the Waterfront Protection Open House, you’ll have a chance to share your stories and photos of your affected land with industry experts.


The Open House will be run in four (4) parts:

  • Drop-in portion for the public to share information and ask questions;
  • A tradeshow portion with industry experts and suppliers available to answer any of the public’s questions;
  • Formal presentations by invited speakers;
  • Round table discussions which will allow for the public to speak about their experiences and share their photos with Town volunteers.


Please RSVP in advance to ensure your seat! If you cannot attend this Open House, we encourage you to still share your stories and photos with us. You’re welcome to share your stories and/or photos with the Town in advance of the Open House by filling out a “Waterfront Feedback Form”. The feedback form can be found on the Town’s ‘Waterfront’ page.
