York, Peel, Durham, Toronto and The Conservation Authorities Moraine Coalition (YPDT-CAMC)

What We Do

Across a broad swath of south-central Ontario a coalition of 13 agencies are working together to better understand and manage water resources. The Oak Ridges Moraine focused program stretches from the Credit and Nottawasaga Watersheds in the west to the Trent River in the east and reaches from the shores of Lake Ontario northwards to beyond Lake Simcoe and the Kawartha Lakes. The program provides a multi-agency, collaborative approach to collecting, analyzing and disseminating water resource knowledge as a basis for effective stewardship of water resources. Agencies and consultants look to the program to provide the regional geological and hydrogeological context for their ongoing technical studies and management initiatives.


The root of effective water management is linked to data. The Program's extensive database is one of Canada's largest, actively-mananged groundwater databases, containing a wealth of high quality geological and hydrogeological water related data."

CAMC Interpretation Interpretation

The data is used to interpret the subsurface geology and the area's groundwater flow system. The program has produced "authoritative" geological layering for the area, and the groundwater flow system and its linkage to the region's surface waters is continually being refined and improved through groundwater flow models that have made extensive use of the program's interpretive products.

CAMC Management Management

Using the extensive database to make skillful interpretations, the knowledge pertaining to the region's subsurface geology and the groundwater flow system has grown extensively. Partner agencies and consultants continue to benefit from the cooperative approach taken to advance groundwater knowledge in this part of Ontario.
