Lower Trent Conservation

Annual Reports and Financial Statements

2020 Message  

2020 was a Year of Resilience, not just at Lower Trent Conservation, but across the globe with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although normal operational practices had to drastically change, we persevered in a responsible manner to protect both our staff and our clients. LTC migrated a new email service to make it easier for staff to work fromhome. Our essential service staff for flood forecasting and warning, planning and regulations and conservation lands adapted to working throughout the pandemic with safety restrictions in place.

The year saw positive progress on many fronts with Lake Ontario water levels subsiding considerably resulting in lower flood threats along the lakeshore and decreasing erosion risk to properties. Lower Trent Conservation(LTC) developed a new Capital Asset Management Plan which identifies maintenance and replacement schedules and related costs existing assets. The final report for the Lake Ontario Shoreline Management Plan was received and approved by the Board. Watershed Science and Services developed new guidelines for stormwater management in support of our role to provide advice and recommendations to our municipal partners. Development application numbers reached record highs for the second year in a row. Repairs to the Rawdon Creek flood and erosion control works were completed in partnership with the Township of Stirling-Rawdon. The Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan program successfully delisted BUI #9 –“Restrictions on Drinking Water or Taste and Odour Problems”. LTC was able to complete a COVID-safe delivery of the Native Plant sales in the spring.

Provincial consultations regarding changes to the Conservation Authorities Act were completed in early February. Release of the amendments to the Act occurred in November and passed the legislature in early December. When the directives are received from the province, in 2021, LTC will be working diligently with our municipal partners to achieve suitable and sustainable program delivery.

We are please to present the 2020 Annual Report outlining LTC’s accomplishments. The success of completed projects reflects the Resiliency of our staff to operate under non-optimal conditions and continue to produce excellent results.
