"Our" - Belonging or associated with; a collective approach to watershed planning that recognizes the interconnectedness of the watershed system and its various impacts on the Peterborough community, neighbouring municipalities and indigenous communities.

"Blueprint" - a guide for making something; a plan or design that explains how something may be achieved.

No matter where you live or work, we are all located in a watershed. A watershed is simply defined as an area of land that drains surface water and groundwater into a river or stream. Protection and enhancement of a watershed and the water resource system, including surface water and groundwater features, is a priority action for the City of Peterborough. 

The watershed planning process will be a collaborative effort, dedicated to the protection and enhancement of our water resources.
