After lengthy discussions, the Maitland Valley Conservation Authority board has decided to begin the process of decommissioning the damaged Gorrie Dam.

MVCA Chair David Turton said the decision came down to a number of key factors including cost.

“The available provincial funding; there isn’t any. But I think the biggest one was likely that it’s just a recreational dam,” he said.

It was early Saturday morning of a May long weekend, and Mylène Tomkin was putting across Go Home Lake in her little tin boat, basking in the delight of a favourite annual ritual: the cottage opening. Tomkin spends her summer weekends on a water-access lot on the steep-sloped north shore of the lake. A lot of work goes into opening weekend—multiple boxes of supplies, a cooler packed full of food for the fridge, another for the freezer, a boat hauled out of winter storage, and an engine awakened from slumber—but it rewards with the anticipation of the summer of leisure ahead.

We have all seen them at someone’s cottage (maybe even your own!): shelves loaded down with books or Cottage Life magazines that are valiantly doing their best to stay straight, but simply cannot.

Shelves will invariably sag if the span is too great for the load or if the shelf material is simply not robust enough.

If it’s the latter, and the shelves are not fixed, replace them. Harder woods such as maple will hold up far better to weight than softwoods like pine, though they will be almost double the price.

Matt at Environmental Defence Gala 4

Wow, do we have a lot to share in this month’s newsletter! The Coastal Centre has been very busy collaborating with environmental groups along our shoreline to protect your lake.

I had the opportunity to attend the Environmental Defense Gala in Toronto. We have had a planning workshop with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, met with Conservation Authorities, Healthy Lake Huron and the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association. We have made presentations to several of your municipal councils, have met with Pine River Watershed Initiative Network and the International Joint Commission.  We are doing all this in an effort to link all environmental groups along our shore to create a cohesive effort to protect and improve the health of Lake Huron.
