Prevent Flood Damage To Your Home, Protect Local Wildlife, And Keep Your Drinking Water Clean

Residents of the Ottawa Valley’s Mississippi and Carp River Watersheds deserve a clean, well-managed water system. That’s why MVCA protects the needs of landowners and the environment by using an Integrated Approach To Watershed Management.

Across 11 municipalities, MVCA works to keep your drinking water, local ecosystems, and your property safe. Reconnect with your natural environment by visiting locally significant areas, helping at home or helping MVCA monitor your water quality. Located in eastern Ontario, the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority is responsible for both the Mississippi River watershed—3750 sq. km—and the Carp River watershed—700 sq. km—totaling an area of 4,450 sq. km.
