As part of the consultation process for the Carruthers Creek Watershed Plan (CCWP) the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), in partnership with the Region of Durham, is hosting a public open house to solicit feedback on the plan’s draft Management Framework.

While it may be a small watershed in Durham Region, Carruthers Creek is certainly an important one. Connecting Pickering and Ajax, this unique watershed, home to several rare plants and fish, drains into the north shore of Lake Ontario. A new Watershed Plan will aim to protect the ecological health of Carruthers Creek now and in the future. Community input on the Management Framework will help TRCA and the Region of Durham create a healthier future for Carruthers Creek.

The final plan will not result in a decision on future land use designations. Rather, it will recommend management actions focused on the protection, restoration, enhancement, and long-term management of the watershed. The recommendations will apply to existing land uses, and potential changes throughout the entire watershed.
