Dares Lake Watershed Protection

In 1972, 518 acres of land surrounding the Town’s water supply at Dares Lake were designated a protected watershed area. Provincial Regulations protect the Town’s water supply from commercial, residential and recreational activities that could have a negative impact on Dares Lake water quality. The Town is also developing a Source Water Protection Management Plan to provide additional protection measures for the Dares Lake watershed.
