Lake Planning Program
From 2005 to 2008, the Lake Management Planning Program provided information and guidance to lake groups within the Tay Valley Township and the Tay River Watershed interested in developing lake plans. The program was organized by the Friends of the Tay Watershed, Lanark County Stewardship Council, Mississippi Valley Conservation, Otty Lake Association, Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, and the Tay Valley Township.
The Lake Management Planning Program provided:
- Information packages on the benefits and process of lake planning;
- Workshops aimed at sharing information about lake issues;
- Support and assistance in the development of State of the Lake Reports and Lake Plans;
- A comprehensive website offering helpful lake planning resources and templates
Funding for the program was granted through the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Lanark County Stewardship Council, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Rideau Lakes Environmental Foundation and the TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
2009 onward . . .
Although the funding for this very successful program has come to an end, the partners remain committed to lake planning and continued support for the development of lake plans to protect the health of local lakes and their watersheds.
