The P2P Foundation

The P2P Foundation is a global network of researchers, activists, and citizens monitoring and promoting actions geared towards a transition to a Commons-based society. We are a decentralized, self-organized, globally distributed community building an information-commons ecosystem for the growing P2P/Commons movement. We examine both the digital and the material worlds, their freedoms and restrictions, scarcities and abundances. We are an incubator and catalyst, focusing on the “missing pieces” and the inter connectedness that can lead to a wider movement.

Geology of Oak Ridges Moraine

geology2.pngIn oakridgeswater.ca, very detailed maps and explanations of Oak Ridges Moraine geology is provided, and also about the history of Oak Ridges Moraine hydrogeology program. Since the information that is provided includes expert’ interpretation and data integration of Oak Ridges Moraine geology, it is a good source of information for someone who is interested in starting a project related to the area.

About oakridgeswater.ca :

The Oak Ridges Moraine (ORM) is a 160-km long ridge of sand, silt and gravel deposits that is oriented approximately east-west, and lies north of Lake Ontario. The site encompasses and, extends north, east and west from the City of Toronto within the province of Ontario in Canada.

Program Mandate :

To provide a multi-agency, collaborative approach to collecting, analyzing and disseminating water resource data as a basis for effective stewardship of water resources. The YPDT-CAMC Groundwater Management Program is to build, maintain and provide to partnered agencies the regional geological and hydrogeological context for ongoing groundwater studies and management initiatives within the partnership area.

As such, the program will:

1. Build and maintain a master database of water related information that is accessible to all partner agencies.

2. Build and maintain a digital geological construction of the subsurface layers that is accessible to all partner agencies.

3. Build and/or maintain numerical groundwater flow model(s) that can be used to address any number of issues that arise at the partner agencies.

4. Coordinate and lead investigations that will acquire new field data to strategically infill key data gaps.

5. Provide technical support to Source Water Protection Teams to ensure that interpretations used in source water are consistent with the regional understanding.

6. Provide technical support to planning authorities to ensure that Official Plan policies are developed in a manner which makes them consistent with up to date groundwater science as derived from the program.

7. Provide technical support to all partnered agencies for addressing other Provincial Legislation.

In order to understand and characterize the hydrogeology of the ORM, the York-Peel-Durham-Toronto (YPDT) coalition and the Conservation Authorities Moraine Coalition (CAMC) have initiated regional and local-scale groundwater studies.

Lead Agencies :

  • the Regional Municipalities of York, Peel, and Durham, and the City of Toronto (YPDT)
  • the Conservation Authorities Moraine Coalition (CAMC) consisting of the nine conservation authorities with jurisdiction on the Oak Ridges Moraine.

Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation

The Oak Ridges Moraine Foundation (ORMF) is a non-profit organization mandated to preserve and enhance the Oak Ridges Moraine (Moraine). Originally established as a granting agency in 2002 following the implementation of the Provincial Government’s Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Plan (ORMCP), the ORMF has successfully provided funds to many different partners in support of stewardship, education, research, the Oak Ridges Moraine Trail and land securement projects.
