When significant changes occur within our watersheds, such as growth, new infrastructure and climate change, our watershed plans need to be updated to respond to the changing conditions. With funding support from the Region of Durham, Central Lake Ontario Conservation (CLOCA) has initiated a review and update to the Lynde Creek, Oshawa Creek, Black/Harmony/Farewell Creek and the Bowmanville/Soper Creek watershed plans. This review will be a scoped exercise using the most recent data collected through CLOCA’s integrated watershed monitoring program to “refresh” our models, mapping, data and analysis. It is anticipated that this review will be completed in 2020.
Engagement and consultation are an important component of this review, and this will be carried out at different points, and in different manners, over the next 2 years. CLOCA staff are presently working on preparation of an engagement plan that will identify a suite of tools to be used to effectively convey information about this project, garner input and feedback, and to support increased community awareness of the importance of watershed health.
