Watershed Report Cards
Monitoring and protecting the watershed is a very important part of our overall effort to preserve the health of the environment upon which we all depend. We work with our partners year-round to provide the best scientific investigation of the health of the watershed and to establish programs for its protection and restoration. This includes continually monitoring, evaluating and communicating the results. One way to inform our community about the health of our watershed is through our Watershed Report Card.
The 2013 Watershed Report Card has been produced using a standardized set of indicators as set out through Conservation Ontario's watershed report card guidelines. These guidelines were created in partnership with conservation authorities across Ontario, as well as with other provincial and federal agencies and have been established to ensure consistent reporting of watershed conditions across the province.

If you would like to find out more details about your local subwatershed conditions, please call us at 905-895-1281 or drop us a line at info@LSRCA.on.ca.
