The Harper Creek subwatershed is located in southwest Peterborough. Harper Creek Wetland and Harper Park are one of Peterborough’s largest, naturally vegetated and heavily treed areas.

The Subwatershed Study will identify and characterize the water resource system, including the natural heritage features, functions, and cultural values of the Harper Creek subwatershed. The Study will ultimately recommend a land use plan and detailed management strategy to satisfy local and provincial policy.
