Water - Current Issues and Priorities
To monitor issues affecting the short- and long-term health of the waters along the eastern and northern shores of Georgian Bay and liaise with other organizations in finding solutions to threats to the water system
Water Quality – Encourage all municipalities along the shoreline to fund and direct long-term testing of the health of the water ecosystem. Support water testing volunteers in local associations. Work with water testing service providers (GBF, GBBR, District of Muskoka, etc) to ensure standardized testing protocols and end user needs are being properly addressed.
Water Levels – Monitor the water levels projects. Marshal support as appropriate for economic impact studies (Mowat Study, for example).
Water Research – Liaise with municipalities and other organizations conducting research in the waters and wetlands of Georgian Bay
