The Rideau Valley Rural Clean Water Program (RVRCWP) grant and technical assistance program is for on-farm and rural projects to protect water quality in the Rideau River watershed outside the City of Ottawa. (see map)
The RVRCWP works in partnership with individual landowners to help protect the land and water we all rely on. The program offers financial incentives to farmers and rural property owners to undertake projects that protect and improve water quality in the Rideau River watershed.
The Clean Water Program operates from the edge of the City of Ottawa to the lake country west of Perth and from Sharbot Lake south through the Rideau Lakes district. As of 2005, the RVCA also delivers the City of Ottawa Program.
