Title: Ausable Bay Conservation Authority, Clean Up Rural Beaches (CURB) plan
Author: Hocking, Doug; Dean, Donna
Abstract: This report represents the Clean Up Rural Beaches (C.U.R.B.) Plan for the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority's (A.B.C.A.) Target Sub-basin Study. The objective of this Plan is to protect water quality at Grand Bend beaches and by extension all Lake Huron beaches within the A.B.C.A. jurisdiction. Recommendations include information extension to increase resident awareness of sources of rural sources of contamination, encouragement of best septic waste and manure management practices, and grants to eliminate contamination of A.B.C.A. watercourses by livestock access and milkhouse waste discharges. The goal is to reduce fecal coliform bacteria and total phosphorus loads delivered to A.B.C.A. watercourses and subsequently to Lake Huron. The C.U.R.B. model estimates these contaminant loads from rural sources within each of the 63 subwatersheds of the A.B.C.A. by a series of algorithms.
