LSEMS Implementation


In 1990 the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority was named lead agency to coordinate the Lake Simcoe Environmental Management Strategy (LSEMS) Implementation Program, a five year plan to improve the water quality of Lake Simcoe.

The goal of the LSEMS Implementation Program was to improve the water quality and natural coldwater fishery of Lake Simcoe by reducing the phosphorus loading to the lake. The LSEMS Implementation Program was to:

  • initiate remedial measures and control options designed to reduce phosphorus inputs entering Lake Simcoe,
  • monitor the effectiveness of these remedial measures and controls and
  • evaluate the overall response of the lake to this program.
