Con­cern over high wa­ter lev­els prompt Burling­ton to close creeks, parks

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL - THE HAMIL­TON SPEC­TA­TOR

BURLING­TON — The city has closed ar­eas around some lo­cal creeks and water­front parks be­cause high wa­ter lev­els have caused un­safe con­di­tions. The af­fected ar­eas in­clude: In­for­mal paths along Tuck Creek from Re­gal Road to Tuck Park: re­cent rains have dam­aged the banks of Tuck Creek be­low Re­gal Road, mak­ing the trails danger­ous to pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists.

The float­ing pub­lic docks and pedes­trian ramps at the LaSalle Park Ma­rina boat launch: they will be re­moved early next week un­til the lake level re­cedes. The pub­lic launch re­mains open.

The city is warn­ing res­i­dents to stay away from these ar­eas un­til re­pairs can be made and to be cau­tious at water­front parks be­cause of the record high lake lev­els.
