This page will provide a link to an ecclectic mix of information about the watershed. New items will be added here from time to time.
- Geology and Mining Report
The report entitled "Geology, Mineral Deposits and History of Mining in the Tay River Watershed" is now available on-line. This report, written by geologist Donald Sherwin, for the Friends of the Tay Watershed Association contains a wealth of geological and mining information for our watershed. It includes references to the occurrence of uranium in our watershed, as well as a detailed mineral occurrences map. The Print version is also available from the Friends of the Tay Watershed.
Clck here for the report.
- Check out your mineral rights

- Canoeing the Tay
The Tay River is a hidden jewel. It gives one the impression that it is miles from civilization and yet it is literally at our back door. It is a marvelous river to paddle. For a copy of the "Canoeing the Tay" brochure, please click here.
- Tay River indicators
The Tay River is in reasonably good health overall. There are, however, some "hot spots" in several areas that are monitored for change and efforts are underway to improve the health in the problematic areas. Some of the indicators are shown below:
