Grand River watershed residents can do a survey on water issues

CAMBRIDGE - The Grand River Conservation Authority is asking residents to participate in a survey on water issues in the Grand River watershed.

The GRCA is conducting the survey as part of a project to update a water management plan that will examine the future needs of the watershed in three critical areas: water supply, water quality and flood damaged reduction.

The survey can be found on the GRCA’s website at

The survey will be open until Dec. 2.

It asks participants to identify the ways they use water in home, on the farm, in business and industry or in the community. The survey outlines a series of objectives for water and the river system in a variety of areas - water supply, culture and tourism, biodiversity and others - and asks if those objectives are being met.

The water management plan is an update of the last plan completed in 1982. That earlier plan was developed to address challenges facing the watershed at that time. Nearly all of its recommendations were implemented.

The new plan will consider water issues in light of 21st century challenges including population growth, climate change and intensive agriculture.

The GRCA is working with municipalities, provincial and federal ministries and First Nations to develop it. Work has been underway for about a year and the plan is scheduled to be completed by March 2013.

More information on the plan and the survey is available on the GRCA website in the Water Management Plan section.
