TELL DURHAM REGIONAL COUNCILLORS TO SAY NO TO URBANIZING THE CARRUTHERS CREEK HEADWATERS
Developers want to pave over the Carruthers Creek Headwaters, a sensitive ecological area and prime farmland in Durham Region. We need to stop it.
Paving over this area would not only mean the loss of this sensitive natural area and prime agricultural lands, but it may also contribute to flood risk, and require the Town of Ajax to raise taxes to pay for upgrades to the city’s stormwater management system.
A recent report by the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority found that urbanization will have a negative effect on the Carruthers Creek watershed and will lead to a dramatic increase in downstream flooding and erosion.
Tell Durham Regional Councillors to reject the proposal by developers to pave over the Carruthers Creek Headwaters. Help save this ecologically sensitive area.
Your letter will be sent to: John Henry, Regional Chair and CEO, Durham Region
