The following maps show where land is regulated within the Lake Simcoe watershed. The overall Regulation Limit has been updated April 1, 2019 as part of an annual update process.
Approximately 29% (including Lake Simcoe) of the Lake Simcoe watershed is regulated by LSRCA. We regulate for a number of natural hazards, not just flooding. For example, the regulation areas also include steep slopes, erosion-prone areas and wetlands.
Our online mapping shows the boundaries of the entire regulated area, which include all of the above noted hazards including their respective setbacks. In order to determine why a specific property is regulated, please contact our Permits and Regulations team.
