LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN Lake Erie 5 Restoration Strategy The watercourses in the Lake Erie 5 subwatershed consist of two main branches. The northern branch commences on the north side of Burnaby Wainfleet Airport PSW and flows between the wetland and a woodlot and the Port Colborne Country Club golf course before joining a roadside ditch that leads to Lake Erie. This roadside ditch outlets with a second roadside ditch that comes from a strip of residential properties on the southern edge of the subwatershed. The second branch flows from an agricultural field with little to no riparian buffer before also joining the roadside ditch. The watercourses in this subwatershed have not been evaluated in terms of importance for fish habitat, however the MNR has identified important spawning areas near the outlet in Lake Erie and the Lake Erie shoreline in this area has been identified as Fowler Toad habitat of which Niagara is one of only three areas in Canada where this SAR is found. No geomorphic assessments or water quality sampling was conducted in Lake Erie 5. Land use in this subwatershed is primarily agricultural with some strip and node residential areas. The challenge of the Lake Erie 5 subwatershed is the establishment of a sufficient vegetative riparian buffer which is imperative in assisting with the protection and enhancement of water quality and fish habitat as well as providing a corridor that will facilitate in wildlife movement along the watercourse between fragmented natural areas. By integrating golf course management practices with wildlife management, such as incorporating enhanced natural areas into the landscaping, golf courses have the potential to offer a wide range of habitat for wildlife. In addition, encouragement of environmentally responsible maintenance practices, if not already adopted, will be beneficial to water quality and the aquatic habitat. The Lake Erie 5 Subwatershed Restoration Strategy identifies one zone with specific stewardship and restoration recommendations (Table 14 and Figure 25). 159
