Sturgeon Lake Management Plan

The Sturgeon Lake Management Plan was initiated in 2010, and has involved 3 years of research. The goal is to maintain and enhance the environmental health and economic sustainability of Sturgeon Lake and the lands that drain to it.

We have developed a set of recommendations and actions based on the research. An early draft of the plan was presented in August 2013, and the plan has been further developed based upon public input. It has also undergone review by various stakeholders, committees, and peer reviewers, and will be present to City of Kawartha Lakes Council for endorsement in early 2014. Information about the development of this plan can be found in the News, Events, and Reports section.

Plan development is a collaborative effort among many agencies, groups and stakeholders who have an interest in the health of our lakes. See more about our partners.
