APPENDIX C BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES MENU MANAGEMENT ALTERNATIVE DESCRIPTION PUBLIC EDUCATION AND PARTICIPATION USE A WEBSITE TO HOST INFORMATION TRAINING/WORKSHOPS/ PRESENTATIONS INVOLVE SCHOOLS FORM A COMMITTEE/TASK FORCE OF CITIZENS Develop a 15-16-18 Mile Creeks Watershed website to keep agencies, organizations, and others updated about restoration programs. Many times, people do not change their habits and behaviours because they do not know what to do instead (composting, native landscaping, no-phosphorus lawn care, and so forth). Make presentations to classes or conduct field trips. Find out what schools are already doing and see how water quality education can fit into the curriculum. Create a committee to work on specific aspects of the watershed program; try to include representatives from all interest groups.

APPENDIX D Restoration guidelines for riparian, wetland and forest habitat as recommended by Environment Canada (2004c) in its ‘How Much Habitat is Enough?’ document. This framework was used as a guideline in the 15-16-18 Mile Creeks Watershed Restoration Strategy. RIPARIAN HABITAT GUIDELINES PARAMETER GUIDELINE PERCENT OF STREAM NATURALLY VEGETATED 75 percent of stream length should be naturally vegetated. AMOUNT OF NATURAL VEGETATION ADJACENT TO STREAMS Streams should have a minimum 30 metre wide naturally vegetated adjacent-lands area on both sides; Greater depending on site-specific conditions. TOTAL SUSPENDED SEDIMENTS Where and when possible, suspended sediment concentrations should be below 25 milligrams/litre or be consistent with Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (1999) guidelines. PERCENT OF AN URBANIZING WATERSHED THAT IS IMPERVIOUS Less than 10 percent imperviousness in an urbanizing watershed should maintain stream water quality and quantity, and preserve aquatic species’ density and biodiversity. An upper limit of 30 percent represents the threshold for degraded systems. FISH COMMUNITIES Watershed guidelines for fish communities can be established based on knowledge of underlying characteristics of a watershed (e.g., drainage area, surficial geology, flow regime), historic and current fish communities, and factors (and their relative magnitudes) that currently impact the system.
