Download 2013 Budget Report
The role of the N.D.C.A. has evolved over the last several years. Present N.D.C.A. responsibilities include flood control; flood forecasting and warning; hazard land management/regulation; drinking water source protection; community/watershed stewardship; environmental education, etc. The N.D.C.A. requires an organizational structure to meet these responsibilities to protect our watersheds. With the looming impacts of climate change, there is an immediate need for the N.D.C.A. to ready the citizens of Greater Sudbury for the inevitable impacts on our water resources, infrastructure and other watershed resources valued by our community. Current science confirms our water systems and watershed resources are in transition and will continue to be impacted by unpredictable and future extreme weather conditions.
The N.D.C.A.’s 2013 Budget and Business Plan provide the details of the work program that the Authority proposes to implement in its efforts to protect the local watersheds. The success of our conservation program is heavily dependent on partnerships with all levels of government, a wide array of non-government organizations, community groups, and residents. The N.D.C.A. will provide leadership, watershed management actions and support for others. However, in the end, success will depend on our collective effort.
The N.D.C.A. 2013 Budget and Business Plan includes targets and measures for all of the proposed programs and projects as well as clearly identifying their connection to the implementation of the Authority’s Strategic Plan.
2013 promises to be another exciting and challenging year. We look forward to working with all of our partners to ensure healthy watersheds in Greater Sudbury.
