Trout Lake Study

The Trout Lake Watershed and Management Study (Trout Lake Study for short) was initiated as a comprehensive review of lake quality and the review of current policies and provisions around the protection and management of Trout Lake. A comprehensive study has not occurred since 1992. 

North Bay City Council awarded a contract in 2021 to J.L. Richards & Associates Ltd. to “conduct a watershed study, prepare a management plan for Trout Lake and provide planning consulting services to complete the required Official Plan Amendments and Zoning By-law Amendments”. J.L. Richards proposal included working with Hutchinson Environmental Sciences Ltd. who has an expertise in Lake Assessment and Management.

In total, the study provides 28 recommendations to improve current practices and ultimately protect the health of the lake. For more information, explore this webpage.
