Title: Clean Up Rural Beaches (CURB) plan for the Beaverton River Drainage Basin 1989
Author: Westwood, Andrew; Walters, Michael
Abstract: The CURB (Clean Up Rural Beaches) Plan report is a document outlining the remedial projects required to improve water quality in the Beaverton River drainage basin. Water pollution resulting from various agricultural related contaminants has lead to beach closures in recent years. This has resulted in the impairment of the recreational potential of beaches on Lake Simcoe within close proximity of the river outfall. The CURB Plan is based on extensive farm practice inventories, pollution delivery capability, manure management, water quality data and beach posting frequencies. Priorities were placed on projects in the remedial plan based on pollution severity, potential pollution reductions, cost of remediation and the type of pollution input wether continuous or discontinuous. Costs were calculated using 1989 information for labour and materials.
