Be Kind to Your Neighbour - Light Pollution and Music on the Lake


  • Avoid outdoor lights being on at or near the lake
  • Point them toward the ground or use blinders to minimize the light pollution
    • This impacts others on the lake who can see the lights
  • One member noted that South Frontenac Township may have a “Dark Sky” by-law on lights?
  • A member noted that Foodland and Home Hardware lights have been causing excessive light pollution at night


  • Observe municipal by-laws and do not play music throughout the night
  • Others may not enjoy your music, consider how loudly you are playing your music while boating
    • Sound carries on the water

If you plan on playing music on the lake you should be familiar with the associated municipal by-laws.
