Kawartha Lake Stewards Association

The Kawartha Lake Stewards Association is having their Fall Annual General Meeting on Saturday, October 5th at 10am – Lakehurst Hall (979 Lakehurst Circle Road, 9km west of Buckhorn)

KLSA’s annual general meeting is open to the public

This year the emphasis is on our Kawartha Lakes water quality and how progressive Trent Severn Waterway watershed flow management and Kawartha Conservation Authority’s lake management planning need community support to be effective.

What are the water quality implications of watershed flow management?  Dr. David Lean, former NSERC Research Chair in Ecotoxicology, and professor at the University of Ottawa, and former Research Scientist with Environment Canada’s National Water Research Institute, will link water flow with nutrient and water quality issues. He has volunteered his services to both the KLSA and the Coalition for Equitable Water Flow.  

What is the final draft of the Sturgeon Lake Management Plan telling us?  KLSA’s board member Chris Appleton, as Chair of the SLMP Community Advisory Panel, will give us a preview of the soon to be released plan. Copies of the Executive Summary will be available from stewardship staff manning a display. 

The AECOM TSW Water Management Study-what are the findings and recommendations?  Rob Messervey, Kawartha Conservation CAO, represents Conservation Authorities on the TSW Water Management Advisory Committee. He will bring us an update of the AECOM TSW Water Management Study. 

Integrated Water Management of the Trent Watershed: A Reservoir Lakes Perspective.  Chris Riddle and Ted Spence are executives with the Coalition for Equitable Water Flow, a volunteer organization seeking improved water management at the watershed level. 

Our waterway-observations and visionCapt. Mark Ackert, owner/operator of the M.V. Kawartha Voyageur, will give us his observations on the Waterway based on his 20 years of operation and a vision for what can lie ahead. 

The KLSA Annual General Meeting will be held after this session and will include reports from the Chair and Treasurer, the appointment of our auditor for 2013-2014 and election of the Board of Directors for 2013-2014.
