Title: Grand River Rural Beaches Program Guelph Lake Watershed study 1987 progress report - Phase 1: Livestock manure management and water quality study
Author: Hodgins, Grant; Koekkoek, Mary-Ann
Abstract: The Grand River Conservation Authority, funded by the Ministry of the Environment, initiated the Grand River Rural Beaches Program in May, 1986. The goal is to improve recreational water quality in target watersheds: the Nith River, Conestogo Lake, and Guelph Lake. By March 31, 1989, each Watershed Study is required to identify and describe contamination sources and their relative impact and develop a remedial action plan for solving these problems. The remedial action plan will include a cost-benefit evaluation of the various solutions available. The Guelph Lake Watershed became a Rural Beaches Study area in 1987. Phase I, conducted from May to November, 1987, involved a Livestock Manure Management and Water Quality Study. The aim in 1987 was to assess the extent of livestock source pollution and to prioritize areas which may potentially have surface water quality problems resulting from livestock source inputs. This Report is a presentation of Phase I of the Guelph Lake Rural Beaches Study.
