The Township of the Archipelago
Since 2001, the Township has partnered with ratepayer associations within The Archipelago to conduct water quality monitoring. Participating associations include most of our inland lakes and Georgian Bay. The Township supplies the equipment, coli-plates, training and consultant, while Association volunteers carry out the monitoring and provide the data to the Township.
This spring The Archipelago has partnered with the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve (GBBR) on environmental programming, which includes coordinating the Township’s water quality monitoring program. GBBR has been in touch with water quality monitors and ratepayer associations about the registration process and equipment logistics for this year’s program.
