Glace Bay Source Water Protection Plan

The Source Water Protection Plan for MacAskill Brook Dam Reservoir was prepared concurrently with those for Sand Lake and John Allen Lake. One committee, for Birch Grove and area, developed all three plans and the watershed coordinator prepared the three plans based on comments and risk assessments from the committee. The draft source water protection plan for the MacAskill Brook Dam Reservoir was presented in Birch Grove on January 11, 2011. Greg Slaney, NSE Watershed Planner, is pictured below giving a presentation to community members that evening.

Community members endorsed the work of the committee and agreed with the risk assessment and schedule of plan implementation for MacAskill Brook Dam Reservoir.
