Environment Canada accepting projects for improving area lakes and Georgian Bay

Letters of Intent are now being accepted to help improve our local lakes and Georgian Bay.  The Environment Canada program will reduce phosphorous inputs into Lake Simcoe and South-eastern Georgian Bay, improve water quality, and conserve critical aquatic habitat and associated species in these waters.  Any project that reflects these requirements is encouraged to contact Environment Canada with a detailed proposal for the 2015-2016 season.  The geographic boundaries of funding are the watersheds of the Lake Simcoe Region including Lake Couchiching and the Severn River west to Port Severn as well as the watersheds of bays of  the Nottawasaga Valley, Severn Sound, and the targeted coastal regions west of Highway 400/69 north of Port Severn to the French River.  The Fund targets four priority areas including research and monitoring to improve environmental information for decision making, Conservation of critical aquatic habitats and their associated species populations, reduction of rural and urban non-point source phosphorous, and reduction of point sources of phosphorous and other nutrients.  For additional information about the Fund, eligibility requirements, boundary maps, and examples of projects which might be funded visit
