Water Quality

The Township is committed to seeking out, and promoting surface water quality data from various sources in order to maintain and improve the ecological health of our lakes, rivers, and tributaries. To this end, the Township has relied on partnerships with the Cataraqui Conservation Authority, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, the Ministry of Environment, Conservation, and Parks, and various Lake Associations to acquire water quality data that can help inform residents of water quality trends in our lakes, with the hope of providing a scientific basis for policies and programs to further the Township’s goal of maintaining and improving the water quality of the various lakes in the Township.
