The purpose of the proposed Official Plan Amendment would be to provide an updated, simplified
and scientifically defensible policy set for the continued protection of Muskoka’s recreational water
quality.

In this regard, the effect of the Amendment would be to revise and update the existing

by Hutchinson Environmental Sciences Limited (HESL) dated April, 2016.

This report provides
evidence based and outcome driven recommendations on how to protect water quality in the
watersheds of Muskoka in consideration of multiple environmental stressors and using the data
