The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) has released the Draft Carruthers Creek Watershed Plan (CCWP) for public review. The Draft CCWP has been developed by the TRCA in collaboration with the Region of Durham, the City of Pickering and the Town of Ajax. The update of the Watershed Plan commenced in 2015, and included various stakeholder and public engagement opportunities.

The originally planned April 30 Public Open House was postponed due to COVID-19 emergency impacts. However, the Council of the Region of Durham, at its meeting held on December 16, 2020 resolved that the public consultation and comment period for the Carruthers Creek Watershed Plan be resumed, starting on January 4, 2021 and ending on March 19, 2021.

Virtual Public Open Houses have been scheduled for the evenings of February 1, 2021 and February 4, 2021. View the Notice of the Virtual Open House.
