This program will accept applications until August 31 2019.

The Huron Clean Water Project (HCWP) is allocating a total of $40,000 to the septic system upgrade category in 2019 with a maximum grant of $2,000 per project. Systems that have the potential to contaminate drinking water and those near municipal drinking water wells are the main focus. Residences west of Hwy 21 are also a high priority because of their potential impact on swimming beaches.

Autumn is a good time to plant ball and burlap evergreens and potted deciduous trees, according to Ian Jean, Forestry and Land Stewardship Specialist with Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA).
“There are some advantages to planting trees in autumn,” Ian said. “The trees can get used to the new conditions and be ready to grow the following spring. Rainfall is also more reliable which helps with the survival.”
