The Catfish Creek Conservation Authority undertakes projects such as traditional erosion control, fish and wildlife habitat enhancement, species at risk protection, and delivery of provincial/federal programs (e.g. Greencover) on private lands (this could include technical advice or funding assistance).
Over 100 erosion control projects have been constructed by the Authority to help preserve soil resources and reduce sedimentation in the watershed. If you are experiencing a problem with controlling various forms of erosion on your land, please contact our office for assistance.
Elgin Clean Water Program
The Elgin Clean Water Program provides funding to Elgin County landowners to undertake stewardship projects that will benefit the County and our drinking water sources. The program was created by the four Elgin County Conservation Authorities (Catfish Creek, Kettle Creek, Long Point Region, and Lower Thames Valley). The ultimate goal of these projects is to protect and improve the quality of our water and wildlife habitat.
Successful applicants will receive up to 50% of the cost of environmental projects undertaken on their property. Eligible project categories include erosion control measures, wetland and riparian habitat restoration, wellhead protection and decommissioning, livestock access restriction, and clean water diversion.
