    Cottage location within watershedRural landowners who are beginning to "think outside the fence" will find it very helpful to learn about their watershed. A watershed is a land area that drains all the precipitation and streams within it into a common outlet, such as a river, lake, stream or bay. The topography determines how and where the water flows, so the highest ridges surrounding the body of water determine a watershed's boundary, much like a bowl. A watershed could also be called a drainage basin.

    Everyone lives within a watershed and our land management practices can have a negative impact. Each small piece of property has a role to play in the overall health of a watershed.

    In southern Ontario, most of our watersheds are managed by Conservation Authorities. Conservation Authorities deliver a variety of services and programs that protect and manage water and other natural resources. They also sometimes offer services and grants to landowners so it's well worth checking your local conservation authority's website.
