The Fletchers Creek Subwatershed Plan Update provides a strategy to protect and enhance the natural resource features as land use changes, factoring in additional growth information since the original 1996 Plan.
In partnership with local landowners, municipal staff and ministries, CVC has completed the Shaws Creek Subwatershed Study. This report represents the last phase in the subwatershed study series, preceded by the Background Report (2006) and the Characterization Report (2012).
The Fletchers Creek Subwatershed Plan has been prepared to identify natural environmental resources which exist in the watershed, and to establish the appropriate strategies for the protection and enhancement of these features, as land use changes occur.
The Headwaters Subwatershed Study includes a comprehensive overview of the characteristics of the headwaters of the Credit River. It includes an evaluation of vulnerabilities and stressors, as well as opportunities to manage, protect and enhance the environmental characteristics and water resources of the headwaters moving forward. As such it provides a comprehensive list of recommendations including responsibilities and timelines.
This study covers the environmental and water related issues within the Shaws Creek Subwatershed, also referred to as Subwatershed 17. Specifically, an analysis of the groundwater and surface water hydrology, water quality, stream geomorphology, and aquatic and terrestrial ecology were undertaken.
This report is the first of a series of reports that will be developed for the Shaws Creek Subwatershed. The purpose of this report is to summarize the existing available data and information pertinent to the subwatershed.
This study covers the environmental and water related issues within Subwatershed 11, or the Silver Creek Subwatershed. Specifically, an analysis of the groundwater and surface water hydrology, water quality, stream geomorphology, and aquatic and terrestrial habitat were undertaken.
This report ends Phase I (subwatershed characterization) of the West Credit Subwatershed Study and presents the study’s findings. It was initiated to address concerns about the health of the subwatershed’s water and related environmental resources.
This report provides a summary of the characterization of the subwatersheds, an analysis of the conditions and processes affecting the conditions and a management strategy to direct future land use and associated activities.
