Featured Project: Phosphorus Filter
The UTRCA has partnered with the Thames River Clear Water Revival and the Ministry of the Environment’s Showcasing Water Innovation Program to try innovative Best Management Practices.
Phosphorus has been identified as the number one water quality issue for Lake Erie. With this in mind, the UTRCA and partners are working to reduce phosphorus in the Thames watershed.
The London Community Foundation is helping fund conservation farming structures and techniques to improve water quality in London and Middlesex County.
