Community Stormwater Management Projects in the Little Ausable subwatershed

<< Back to project list

The Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority has worked with the Municipality of Lucan Biddulph to build stormwater management projects that reduce the amount of sediment and nutrients entering watercourses in the Little Ausable subwatershed. The Little Ausable is home to the Black Redhorse, a Species at Risk fish. Funding from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Habitat Stewardship Program supported restoration projects on municipal and private lands. In 2021, Scouting groups, local school students and city councillors helped plant over 500 wetland plants in a rain garden enhancement and stormwater management pond buffer zone. Collaborative restoration and enhancement projects will continue in the coming years.

Nearest city or town: Lucan Biddulph
Project start date: September 19, 2022
