LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE

LAKE ERIE NORTH SHORE WATERSHED PLAN Subwatershed Hydrogeologic Characterization Fish Habitat Classification Groundwater Intrinsic Susceptibility Studies Potential Contaminant Sources of Point Source Pollution Site Specific Water Quality Sampling moderately high vulnerability to road salt from regional roads, however this study was not conducted on local municipal roads; therefore it is recommended that a similar study be completed by the respective local municipalities to determine the impact of road salt applications on local municipal roads to the surrounding natural features. Development of subwatershed scale hydrogeologic characterizations would provide optimal information to make informed decisions in regard to applications and for use in planning decisions and policy development. Not all the watercourses in this subwatershed have been evaluated in terms of importance for fish habitat. It is recommended that this assessment be completed so this information can be used for proper resource management and land use planning decisions. The Groundwater Study (2005) has identified the entire Eagle Marsh Drain subwatershed as having a high shallow intrinsic susceptibility (Figure 16a & 16b) The intrinsic susceptibility of groundwater considers only the physical factors affecting the flow of water to, and through, the groundwater resource. Additional studies should be conducted in this watershed to ensure that current and future land uses do not conflict with the protection of groundwater resources in susceptible areas as part of the NPCA‟s Groundwater Study (2005) and proposed Source Protection Plan. An inventory of potential contaminant sources and threats to water quality was identified as part of the objectives for the NPCA‟s Groundwater Study (2005). An updated inventory to confirm potential contaminant sources and locations is recommended as well as further investigation into the possible effects these potential contaminants may have on surface water quality and aquatic habitat and whether or not a contaminant management plan is needed. Enhanced sampling methods upstream and downstream of potential points of contamination should be considered to help identify priority areas for remediation and/or restoration. 184
