Lake Simcoe Protection Act Watershed Boundary

Coordinate system: 4269 - "NAD83"

Abstract:

This data set is a polygon coverage that can be used to identify the Lake Simcoe Protection Act Watershed Boundary (LSPAWB).

The Lake Simcoe Protection Act Watershed Boundary is owned by the Ontario Ministry of Environment (MOE), in cooperation with Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), and was created to support the Lake Simcoe Protection Act. The boundary was first created by LSRCA in 2005 as part of a Source Water Protection boundary project using the LSRCA 2002 5-metre Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and the best available data at the time. The portions of the watershed where the boundary shared a border with the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and the Nottawasga Valley Conservation Authority were manually reviewed and updated though a series of consultations between the agencies.

Supplementary tables can be used and are available for download from the additional documentation section. This layer is part of what was known as the OMNR Non-Fundamental Dataset.
