Wheatley Harbour Area of Concern
Wheatley Harbour was designated as one of the 43 Areas of Concern in accordance with Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA). Remedial Action Plan (RAP) is an ongoing collaborative effort implemented by federal, provincial, and local governments as well as industry and public partners. There are 3 key stages of the RAP: Stage 1 is a detailed description of the environmental problem; Stage 2 identifies remedial actions and options; Stage 3 is the final document providing evidence that the beneficial uses have been restored and the AOC can be “delisted”.
Wheatley Harbour was the third Canadian Area of Concern (AOC) to be delisted In 2010.
Wheatley Harbour is a small harbour on the north shore of Lake Erie, just east of Point Pelee, Ontario. The Area of Concern, the only one on the Canadian shore of Lake Erie, encompasses the harbour and the Muddy Creek wetland, a provincially significant wetland about 13 ha in size.
