Quinte Conservation works on special projects with partner organizations. These projects teach us about the watershed or improve the environment.

Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario Shoreline Management Plan

The purpose of this plan, was to collect information to further aid shoreline protection measures to help safeguard coastal communities from hazards related to flooding and erosion. It was completed in collaboration with local municipalities, the Government of Canada's National Disaster Mitigation Program, and project consultants. The final report  is available for review on our Reports & Studies page.

Drought Management Planning

We have developed a regional drought management plan for our  member municipalities to help them mitigate and adapt to drought. The plan provides background information about local droughts, a drought warning plan, roles and responsibilities, and recommended actions for drought preparation during normal conditions and each drought level. This project has been completed and is available on our Climate Change Page

Stormwater Management Implementation Planning

The stormwater management special project aims to improve the local understanding of stormwater systems and stormwater treatment. We will achieve these goals through education programs, demonstration projects, and studies of municipal infrastructure. This project will be completed in the spring of 2022.
