Learn about shoreline regulations and water levels at open house

Staff at Quinte Conservation will host an open house on Monday, July 15 to discuss shoreline regulations and water levels.

During the open house residents can meet with staff to learn about current permit and regulation procedures, as well as flood information.

“With water levels reaching new heights on Lake Ontario and the Bay of Quinte this year, we wanted to give residents the opportunity to meet with us face-to-face for open conversations on protecting structures from flooding and erosion prevention," says Brad McNevin, CAO, Quinte Conservation.

Residents are encouraged to bring shoreline photos and/or photos showing property damage for advice regarding repairing and protecting properties from future high water events. Staff from the water resources department will also be on hand to answer any questions residents may have about this year’s high water.

The drop-in style open house will take place on Monday, July 15 at the Quinte Conservation offices (2061 Old Highway 2, Belleville) from 4:30 pm – 7 pm.
