Title: Clean Up Rural Beaches (CURB) plan for the Binbrook Reservoir
Author: Laidley, Kevin
Abstract: The Clean Up Rural Beaches (CURB) plan represents the end product of the Binbrook Reservoir Rural Beaches Study activities for the period 1987 to 1990. The purpose of the CURB plan is two-fold: 1) To outline various options, and associated costs, of remediating bacterial inputs to the Welland River watershed upstream of the Binbrook Dam, and 2) To outline a mechanism which will facilitate the implementation of socially and environmentally acceptable options for the improvement of recreational water quality in the Binbrook Reservoir Rural Beaches Study watershed and other rural watersheds within the jurisdictional boundary of the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority. To achieve this purpose, the CURB plan outlines various implementation strategy options ranging from 'do nothing' to the 'complete' remediation of bacterial contamination from livestock operations and private households throughout the watershed. In addition, a conceptualized soil and water conservation program, designed to facilitate the enhancement of rural water quality, is presented.
