CURRENT SHORT- TO MEDIUM-TERM PLAN

Short- to Medium-Term Vision

A rehabilitated cold-water fishery in Central Mill Creek, and tributaries (except Aberfoyle Creek), from Victoria Road downstream to the Gore Road thereby linking the three major sources of cold-water discharge to Mill Creek.

Consistency with the Plan

The Short- to Medium-Term Vision is consistent with:

  1. The ranking of the Central and Aberfoyle Reaches as the highest priority reaches.
  2. Establishing a programme to assess long-term rehabilitation success, the highest ranked priority strategy on the Prioritized List of Strategies.
  3. Annually providing a well-balanced hands-on educational summer experience for the Student Rangers, the second ranked priority strategy on the Prioritized List of Strategies.
  1. Developing community partnerships with landowners, residents, other environmental groups and agencies, the third and fourth ranked strategies on the Prioritized List of Strategies.

Categories of Activities Included in the Current Short- to Medium-Term Plan

  1. Continue to rehabilitate the cold-water fishery of Central Mill Creek between Highway 401 and Downey Road, and the three major tributaries, McCrimmon, Pond and T3.
  2. Subsequently rehabilitate the cold-water fishery of Central Mill Creek between Downey Road and Gore Road, thereby linking the Highway 401/Downey Road area of significant groundwater discharge with that of the area of significant groundwater discharge extending upstream from Grandy’s Pond.
  1. Complete the implementation of cold-water fishery rehabilitation projects of Central Mill Creek from Victoria Road downstream to Highway 401, thereby connecting the Victoria/Brock Roads area of significant groundwater discharge with that of the confluence of Central Mill Creek and McCrimmon, Pond and T3 Tributaries.
  2. Continue to provide a well-balanced hands-on educational summer experience for the Student Rangers with a preference for projects within the priority areas.
  3. Seek out community partnerships with landowners, residents, other environmental groups and agencies by promoting and showcasing Friends of Mill Creek activities.
  4. Implement continuous planning improvement and regularly update both the short- to medium- and long-term plans by collecting additional information on the Upper, Central and Cambridge Reaches.
  5. Define measures of success for each project, and implement measures to assess the long-term and cumulative impact of rehabilitation.
