Development of a city-wide Watershed Management Plan

At its regular council meeting on August 10, 2015 City of Charlottetown counsellors adopted, through resolution, a “City of Charlottetown Brook Trout Conservation and Protection Plan” (see the city’s news release).  This plan, developed by a steering committee made up of city officials and members of the Ellen’s Creek Watershed Group and the Wright’s Creek Environmental Committee, was guided by noted environmentalist, Ms. Megan Harris. The plan focuses on steps needed to restore and maintain Brook Trout habitat in the Ellen’s, Wright’s and Hermitage creeks.  Because a healthy Brook trout population is the central indicator of  water course  and watershed health all parties agreed this was the place to begin an overall, city-wide watershed plan.
