Jack Cook

Jack Cook, the first president of the Upper Rideau Lake Association (URLA) passed away on Tuesday Nov. 20, 2018.  In 1990 Jack, together with Westport Mayor Bill Thake identified a zero-discharge solution to the problem with the village’s sewage treatment system which had been releasing effluent into the lake.  Under his leadership, the lake association grew and thrived and the health of our precious lake regenerated.  Jack and his wife Bea will be remembered as tireless advocates for Upper Rideau Lake – through their many years of service on the lake association, and afterwards, as strong supporters.
