Progress to date: Both Baptiste Lake and Island have good State of the Watershed Reports. We are now working on writing a Terms of Reference for the plan, developed by and agreed to by a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee.
The Terms of Reference will outline the vision for the lake's watershed, how everyone will work together (roles and responsibilities), identify priorities and the scope and scale of the planning activities. We will be engaging people who live, work and play at the lakes to help develop the Watershed Management Plan.
We are anticipating having the Terms of Reference ready for circulation by January 2016.
