The East Branch Weir Removal Project on the Eramosa River is moving ahead.  We are pleased to report that all funding is in place, and the Project will be complete within a few days.  An excellent outcome for the East Channel and for the community.

The Save the East Channel group and ORA worked with the Eden Mills Eramosa River Conservation Association (EMERCA) to find an environmentally sustainable solution that would improve flow and connectivity in the East Channel.
