About the Program
In partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, we assist in the coordination and support of local response in the event of a drought. We monitor local water level and precipitation closely and work with local water users to reduce demand and mitigate effects of water shortages, encouraging voluntary water conservation measures.
Consisting of representatives from the Province, Municipalities, Conservation Authorities, local water users, and interest groups, a Water Response Team is coordinated by Kawartha Conservation in our watershed jurisdiction. We are involved with a coordinated response team for the Durham Region as well.
