Resources – Carruthers Creek

A Watershed Plan for Duffins Creek and Carruthers Creek, completed in 2003, was the result of a three year effort involving local and regional municipal governments, watershed residents and non-government organisations.

It is an example of emerging approaches for watershed management in Ontario, reflecting a continuum of advancements in adapting ecosystem and sustainability principles.

As of 2015, TRCA and the Region of Durham have commenced an exercise to update the 2003 watershed plan for Carruthers Creek. For more information about the watershed plan update, including how you can be involved, visit, or you can contact us at
