CARLETON PLACE — Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority (MVCA) is reminding the public its administrative office in Carleton Place and all facilities and structures at its conservation areas remain closed until further notice due to COVID-19.
MVCA staff are continuing to provide important services across the watershed including flood forecasting, dam operations, and planning and permitting functions.
“During the office closure, staff will continue to work remotely and can be reached via email,” MVCA staff released in a statement. “In an effort to assist community members with their planning and permitting needs during this difficult time, applications can be submitted electronically. Staff will continue to meet the needs of the community and member municipalities in a timely fashion. All general inquiries can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. MVCA is continuing to monitor this situation. Please check our website regularly for updates. Your patience, support and cooperation are appreciated.”
The MVCA is one of 36 Conservation Authorities in Ontario. Formed in 1968, MVCA’s mandate is to manage the watershed’s resources in partnership with our eleven member municipalities and the Province of Ontario.
