Protecting Our Water



The RVCA helps improve the quality of water in our streams, lakes, rivers and groundwater reserves. By learning more about our watershed, we can plan and work towards common goals. Volunteer and grant programs get everyone involved in the science and in remedial projects.

Working with others, we divide the task and double the success!We know that a safe and sustainable water supply is crucial to the economic growth and social well being in the Rideau Watershed. Source Water Protection Planning will help eliminate past, current and future threat to our drinking water sources.It’s our job, in partnership with government and non-government groups, to make sure that the water is looked after by everyone today so that tomorrow’s generations inherit a clean, healthy and functioning watershed.
