With funding from Durham Region, we provide landowner grants through the Scugog WATER Fund to help pay for costs associated with approved stewardship projects. To be eligible, stewardship projects must be in the Durham Region portion of the Kawartha watershed.
Successful projects will be chosen for their potential to address issues affecting Lake Scugog, such as:
- Contaminated urban and agricultural runoff
- Erosion on lake shores and stream banks
- Poorly functioning septic systems around the lake.
New in 2015 - Planting Trees and Shrubs
In addition to the list of projects already supported, the Scugog WATER Fund now supports planting native trees and shrubs. Rural landowners who wish to establishe forest cover on unused land, or plant windbreaks to prevent soil erosion, are encouraged to participate in the program.
