Rural Water Quality Programs

Water is a precious resource. The success of your farm business and the health of your family depend on a clean and abundant water supply. Water is also a shared resource that everyone must help safeguard.  After all, water is ours to protect, and good water quality makes good sense.

Rural Water Quality Programs available to landowners within the Long Point Region watershed will help you take action to protect water quality on your farm or rural property.  Everyone benefits when water quality is improved and protected.

Free technical assistance and financial incentives are available to qualified landowners to share the cost of selected environmental and agricultural Best Management Practice (BMP) projects.  Cost-sharing is available to both farm and non-farm applicants in most areas of the Long Point Region watershed.

Eligible projects include stream fencing, erosion control structures, fuel storage upgrades, tree planting and others.  LPRCA administers these programs in partnership with neighbouring conservation authorities and watershed municipalities.
