Scott Peck is Deputy CAO/Director of Watershed Planning and Engineering for the Hamilton Conservation Authority. Scott introduced us to Conservation Ontario as a whole and its 36 individual ‘Conservation Authorities (CAs)’ who are defined by their watersheds and not by municipal boundaries ie. the City of Hamilton has 3 different CAs within it.
Scott then outlined the responsibility of CAs and outlined the legislated changes imposed upon them by the current government. Scot, then, talked about and showed a video of their current major project, the Saltfleet Wetlands on the east Hamilton Mountain.
