Comments Off on Lakeshore Road – Notice of Detour
Lakeshore Road (Musselman’s Lake) will undergo emergency road reconstruction from approximately 28 July – 7 September, 2020, at the south end of Musselman’s Lake proper. Please see a simplified diagram below.
Due to a narrow working area, a detour will be established from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am – 4pm. Only local traffic will be permitted. The detour will be signed via Aurora Road (Bloomington Road is also an option).
Outside of the 9am – 4pm window, only one lane will be available through the construction zone
The Lakeshore Road Emergency Road Reconstruction and Shoreline Stabilization Project will see the repair and improvement of a degraded 120m section of Lakeshore Road at Musselman’s Lake. The realigned section of Lakeshore Road will facilitate theinstallation of a retaining wall and guiderail system, in the vicinity of the degraded section of roadway. The reconstructed road segment will include improvements to underground infrastructure and will establish a 6.0m paved width, bounded by a new 0.5m shoulder along the south edge and a new curb and gutter along the north edge.
Please note that the Office of the Premier of Ontario lists construction for the maintenance of municipal infrastructure as an “Essential Service,” during the COVID-19 State of Emergency.

Comments Off on We Need Your Help! – Invasive Species invade Musselman Lake
It was brought to our attention in July 2019 that some person, in an act that defies logic put 7 large KOI fish into Musselman’s Lake.
No doubt you have seen these large colourful fish in the shallows of the water.
We have been trying to remove them from our Lake but to date we have not had a lot of success in getting help with this.
WE NEED YOUR HELP. These large KOI are carp that have been bred for their colour, and are considered to be an extremely invasive species and will upset the delicate ecology of our Lake quite quickly.
They do like to hang out in the shallows and although they are bottom feeders they will come to the surface for food and apparently like, corn, bread, peas and watermelon. The good news is that they don’t breed until late in the spring and early summer as they like to wait until the water warms up. We have contacted different agencies to try and get a team out to trap this fish, but none of them will assist us so we need your help.
Please try and catch these fish in any manner you can. If you do manage to catch one, let us know so we can keep track of the remaining numbers.
Lets get these extremely invasive fish out of our Lake!
