Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan


Have your Say about the Bay

Three of the environmental challenges identified for the Bay of Quinte have met all their scientific targets.

This means they have started the process to have their status changed to unimpaired. A vital part of this process is public consultation. Please review the information about each of the environmental challenges and tell us what you think. Are the challenges related to fish and wildlife populations and habitat and underwater bugs ready to have their status changed?

Degradation of fish and wildlife populations

Degradation of benthos (underwater bugs)

Loss of fish and wildlife habitat.

Please send your comments to: Have your Say about the Bay!

P: 613-394-3915 ext 214

Once all eleven environmental challenges undergo this process the Bay of Quinte can be removed from the Areas of Concern list.
