PETERBOROUGH, ON, May 14 /PRNewswire/ - The Superintendent of the Trent- Severn Waterway, Mr. Ken East, advised today that boaters may expect disruptions to service at Ranney Falls, Locks 11/12 in Campbellford early in the navigation season. The 386 kilometre long Trent-Severn Waterway, is scheduled to open the navigation season at 9:00 a.m. on Friday May 21.
