Community Consultation – Ramsey Lake Subwatershed Study

The City of Greater Sudbury will begin the first of a series of consultation sessions for the Ramsey Lake subwatershed study. The first public open house will take place on December 8 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Northern Watersports Centre, at 206 Ramsey Lake Road. 

What are we looking to achieve? We want to get a 360° look at the health of our subwatershed systems. How will we do this? We’ll be looking at stormwater-related risks when it comes to land-use decisions and community planning in order to develop a strong framework for responsible development within the subwatershed areas to preserve and enhance the natural environment.

Our water resources are an important aspect of daily living in our community. From drinking water for our residents and animals to supporting habitat for our plants and wildlife, as well as providing great recreation opportunities, protecting our watersheds has been identified as a priority in the City of Greater Sudbury’s Official Plan.
