Abstract

This document is the CURB Plan for the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority and is the result of the NVCA Rural Beaches Program. The purpose of this report is to assess the pollution content of watercourses throughout the NVCA watershed and to suggest measures to reduce the potential health risks associated with fecal contamination of swimming water. The beaches considered include Wasaga Beach, which is the world's largest fresh water beach and is located along the shoreline of Georgian Bay. Several reservoir beaches are also discussed. The reservoir beaches include those at Earl Rowe Reservoir, Tottenham Reservoir, Utopia Reservoir and New Lowell Reservoir.
