A watershed plan is a tool that helps us understand the past and plan for the future health of the Credit River Watershed. It identifies current and future conditions in forests, wetlands, streams, and groundwater, and proposes solutions to address any identified issues. The creation of CVC’s new Watershed Plan is a multi-year process that involves three main phases.
“We’re sharing the findings of the first phase of the Watershed Plan, that looks at how the health of the watershed has evolved over the past 70 years,” said Kata Bavric, Program Manager, Watershed Plan and Analytics at CVC. “With this information in mind, we encourage our watershed community to provide their input – we want feedback on the most urgent environmental priorities and what aspects of the local environment are most important to residents that live, work and play in the watershed.”
The in-person open houses are family-friendly and feature interactive activities. Attendees will receive a free CVC park day pass while supplies last.
