Stoney Creek Environmental Working Group

Mandate (1999, modified 2007)

The Stoney Creek Environmental Working Group (SCEWG) is comprised of representatives from community groups and agencies who are committed to sustaining and improving the quality of the Stoney Creek Watershed’s water, its wildlife and its environment.

Guiding Principles (2007)

In the interest of ensuring that Stoney Creek is managed in a comprehensive and integrated manner, the SCEWG should aim to include representatives from right-of-ways, governmental agencies and other bodies, in order to achieve the following:

  • Walk the creek to view and discuss changes in the watershed that may impact the creek and right-of-ways;
  • Discuss maintenance prescriptions that may affect the watershed and its stakeholders;
  • Support the use of best management practices for mitigation and compensation works to ensure sustainability of the creek;
  • Discuss opportunities for inter-organizational cooperation when undertaking projects in the watershed;
  • Become familiar with the managers, ground crews and resource people who maintain rights-of-way along the creek, who may be called upon to engage in activities benefiting the creek; and
  • Be the ‘eyes and ears’ for the watershed, and communicate issues that need addressing to the appropriate members in the working group.
