15-16-18 Mile Creek - Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority

Completed over a 24

Completed over a 24 month period, the watershed planning process follows several steps including numerous opportunities for public involvement through open houses, workshops, and an agricultural land use survey (Figure 2). The Phase 1 watershed characterization contains a detailed background report including a description of the watershed’s physiography, soils, land use, ecological, cultural and natural heritage, as well as a description of surface and groundwater resources. Phase 2 of the watershed planning process provides a set of watershed objectives that are linked to a comprehensive list of watershed issues derived from the NWQPS (Regional Municipality of Niagara 2003), and public events. Issues specific to agriculture were gathered through the Land Management Issues and Agricultural Best Management Practices survey (Appendix A), which was distributed to Ontario Federation of Agriculture members through a partnership with the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority. Any issues derived from these documents and public venues form the foundation of the watershed strategy and subsequent action plan, which are the focus of Phase 2 of the watershed planning process.

Watershed Vision Under the Conservation Authorities Act (R.S.O. 1990, c.C27), the mandate of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) is to establish and undertake programs designed to further the conservation, restoration, development and management of natural resources. In keeping with the mandate of the NPCA, NWQPS (Regional Municipality of Niagara 2003), and the watershed challenges and issues, residents of the Fifteen-Sixteen-Eighteen Mile Creeks watershed envision the following: The Fifteen-Sixteen-Eighteen Mile Creeks watershed and its surrounding watersheds will support healthy natural areas, farms, watercourses, and habitat for a diversity of flora and fauna. The preservation, conservation and restoration of the watershed’s ecosystem will protect society’s resource needs by sustaining the ecological processes that naturally protect air, water, and land resources. Environmental stewardship, achieved through a collaborative approach to conservation that respects landowners, will help create a healthy watershed ecosystem and exciting opportunities for education and recreation for all citizens in the Fifteen-Sixteen-Eighteen Mile Creeks watershed. 3
