April 7, 2022 – A community open house will be held April 13 at North Bay City Hall (3-6pm) and at Corbeil Park Hall (9:30-11:30am)  for the Trout Lake Watershed Study and Management Plan.

The Watershed Study and Management Plan is being conducted jointly by the City of North Bay, North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority (NBMCA) and the Municipality of East Ferris to update and establish policies and provisions that will help to protect and preserve Trout Lake, Four Mile Lake and inflowing streams.

All residents of the City of North Bay and Municipality of East Ferris are invited to attend the open house,  in order to ask questions and provide comments about the management of the Trout Lake watershed. Comments can also be submitted online at https://www.northbay.ca/projects/trout-lake-study/ where a virtual presentation will posted prior to the open house.  

Trout Lake is North Bay’s source of municipal drinking water and is also the source of water for many shoreline residents in North Bay and East Ferris.

The intent of the Watershed Study and Management Plan is ensure policies and provisions protect the quality of water and visual and aesthetic characters of the watershed and to preserve opportunities for recreational, social and environmental experiences on its waterways.
