ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Elgin Clean Water Program is a rural water quality initiative that provides technical assistance and financial incentives to help landowners embark on stewardship projects. The program was created by four Elgin County Conservation Authorities (Catfish Creek, Kettle Creek, Long Point Region, and Lower Thames Valley). The ultimate goal of these projects is to protect and improve the quality of our drinking water sources.

Successful applicants will receive up to 50% of the cost of environmental stewardship projects undertaken on their property. Eligible project categories include erosion control measures, wetland and riparian habitat restoration, wellhead protection and decommissioning, livestock access restriction, and clean water diversion. There is also funding available for other innovative projects which lead directly to improved water quality or overall watershed health.
