Water information for rural landowners in the Saugeen and Maitland watersheds.
The focus of "My Land, Our Water" is a mapping application that enables you to view information about your property including soil, slope, wells and geology. In addition, you can learn about the vulnerability of your property to surface and groundwater contamination. This information reflects the physical attributes of a property rather than the type of land use occurring on the site.
Are you in the Saugeen watershed? You will see maps of your property
while residents in the Maitland watershed will see aerial photos.
Aerial photos of the Saugeen watershed will be available late in 2006.
We are in the process of expanding My Land, Our Water to include the Ausable Bayfield watersheds. Plans are underway to have this information available in the fall of 2006.
Be sure to check out the information on surface water and groundwater that's available under Why Healthy Water? You can read about why healthy water is important, learn about groundwater and get tips on protecting your well from contamination.
If you have questions visit the contact page. We want to hear from you.
This project is a collaborative effort involving the Maitland and Saugeen Valley Conservation Authorities, the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, Conservation Ontario and resource experts. This project reflects the strong commitment of all the contributing partners to using new and innovative approaches to protect our water resources.
