Aggregate rehabilitation creates 293 ha. of aquatic habitat
September 5, 2017 - A recent study, funded by OSSGA, found that within the three Plan Areas, aggregate rehabilitation created 293 ha of aquatic habitat.
This is the equivalent area of 1,849 NHL sized ice rinks!
The study identified 123 surrendered licences within the Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan area, the Niagara Escarpment Plan area and the Greenbelt Plan area, and used a desktop review to identify and characterize aquatic habit features created through rehabilitation. The study also found that nine rehabilitated wetlands were part of six different Provincially Significant Wetland (PSW) Complexes. Although most of the created habitat features were quite small (less than 0.2 ha) they were often located adjacent to existing natural heritage features and can contribute to biodiversity and ecological functions on a local and broader landscape level.
