Otter Lake Water Level Monitoring On-Line Link

Date Posted: June 16, 2017

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry monitors and regulates the lake water levels for Otter Lake and Little Otter Lake by removing and adding logs in the dam at the mouth of the Boyne River on Little Otter Lake. It is a tricky job since heavy rains can quickly increase lake levels from the large catch basin around our lakes. To see the lake level monitoring go to - https://www.hobolink.com/p/b35506827ed23569081f9b49b27a3af1 For this summer the MNR and F target range is between about 207.27 to 207.05 metres. The lake levels are in that target range now.

Bathe in the Lake? Please Do Not.

Date Posted: June 6, 2017

Do members of your family or visitors think it is ok to bathe in the lake? If so, please advise them not to. According to the Federation of Ontario Cottagers Association (FOCA), At the lake, soaps should always be phosphate-free. Avoid antibacterial soaps. Soapy wastewater from dish washing and bathing should be disposed of in soil at least 60 meters from the edge of the water to prevent harming wildlife and creating nutrient-induced algae blooms. Thanks for helping to protect our lake!

OLRA AGM - Monday, May 22nd 2017 9-noon

Date Posted: May 7, 2017

The question has come up as to why OLRA is having our AGM on Monday instead of Sunday. The reason is the Foley Community Centre was booked for a wedding on the Saturday before and could not be cleaned in time for OLRA to have a Sunday morning meeting. So the Board decided to have the meeting on Monday morning instead. We will see how people like Monday vs Sunday when a lot of people still have company for the long weekend. See you there!
