Watershed Management

water management

The Nickel District Conservation Authority (NDCA) is in the business of managing watersheds. We are all connected by watersheds; actions taken, either positive or negative, can impact the health of the entire watershed.

Ensuring that homes and people are protected from the threats of flooding and erosion, is the most important activity undertaken by the NDCA and all Conservation Authorities. Plans for new homes and developments are carefully reviewed and criteria set to ensure people, property, and natural features, are properly protected from the potentially life-threatening impacts of these natural hazards.
