Lynde Creek Watershed Draft
Existing Conditions Report

Early in 2007 the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (CLOCA) launched the development of a watershed management plan for the Lynde Creek.  In June, notice that work on this project had begun was sent out to stakeholders and agencies, along with a questionnaire.  The questionnaire was also posted on CLOCA’s web site.

An Existing Conditions Report for the watershed has now been drafted.  The report is an 18-chapter compilation of the available watershed-related information.  At this time, it is very important that agencies, stakeholders and the public have an opportunity to review this report and provide their comments.  Those comments received will be considered and the draft Existing Conditions Report finalized.  When finalized, the report will be used in Phase 2 planning activities to develop specific strategies to maintain, improve, and restore the watershed’s integrity.  Once confirmed, these strategies will ultimately help incorporate relevant ecosystem considerations into land use planning, decision-making, and stewardship initiatives.
