Ontario’s Conservation Authorities monitor the health of natural resources in their watersheds. This helps us to provide a better understanding of local environmental issues, focus conservation efforts where they are needed most, and track changes over time.
What is a Watershed?
A watershed is the area of land that catches rain and snow and drains or seeps into a marsh, stream, river, lake or groundwater. Watersheds are the collectors, filters, conveyers and storage compartments of our fresh water supply.
Wherever you may be in the Toronto region right now, you are in a watershed!
