TRBP-logo-blueThe Thames River Basin Partnership (TRBP)

grew out of locally-led workshops held by the region’s Soil and Water Conservation Districts. Priority areas of concern for the Partnership are to:

Protect the region’s  agricultural and natural areas being threatened by land use changes;
Protect ground and surface water quantity and quality being threatened and degraded by contamination;
Protect the region’s biodiversity; and
Improve the coastal zone  resource conditions.
