Healthy Communities from the Land to the Lake

Healthy Lake Huron - Clean Water, Clean Beaches is a concerted effort to address nuisance algae concerns and to promote safe and clean beaches and shorelines from Sarnia to Tobermory.

Six key watersheds have been identified as priorities for immediate action.  This group is now working together with local partners to develop and support the implementation of watershed management plans, with specific targeted actions, as well as monitoring and research, for each priority area.
