"The protection of our lakes, rivers and streams is not only important for our recreation and the beauty of our City, but is of extreme importance to the preservation of our drinking water. There are some specific things that the City can control with regard to source water protection, including looking at efficient ways of managing storm sewer drainage. We also need to develop an effective way of monitoring the phosphorous in our lakes as we move toward the densification of the city core."
