The Scott Municipal Drain is a coldwater tributary of the Belgrave Creek that flows into the Maitland River.
This drain once contained a healthy trout population and provided critical spawning habitat for salmonids, but sedimentation from upstream negatively impacted this channel.
The Maitland Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) worked with landowners in the Scott Drain watershed to restore this important tributary. Improvements to the channel conditions and habitat within the Scott Drain have increased the productive capacity for migratory trout that support the recreational fishery within the Maitland River and ultimately Lake Huron.
Join us on a virtual tour of the Scott Municipal Drain.
The virtual tour showcases a system of wetlands, grassed waterways, erosion control berms, windbreaks, watercourse buffering, diversion berms and natural channel design.
Many of these features were incorporated into the Municipal Drain Report, providing legislative protection and support for future years.
Enjoy the tour!
