Shoreline Study (Survey)
August 16, 2007
Performed by the Ontario Stewardship Rangers
Ministry of Natural Resources
We have photocopies of the Shoreline Study Survey maps that are listed below. If you want
a copy of one or more maps then let us know and we will send it you. There is a small cover
charge (what it costs us) for each photocopy plus postage for mailing which we can collect
from you later. Printing some of these maps may require a good amount of your printer's
ink, whereas it's less expensive if you get a photocopy. Also, we have a copy of these files
stored on a CD-RW disc which is kept in the Associations' records.
We think it's best to first study the colour maps, i.e., the Colour Overview
Image because that gives you the shape of the lake's shoreline,
shows where buildings are located, creeks, roads, etc. Also, read the first document, Faraday
Lake Shoreline Assessment.
Next, you will notice PDF files numbered from 1 - 13. The order they should be arranged
to correspond with the shape of the lake is that they start at number 1, which is the northend
of our lake, and then they go clockwise in succession showing the shape of the shoreline
of the lake, i.e., 1, 2, 3, etc. until number 13 is next to number 1.
Before you download the files to your computer for later use, please notice two of the files may
be slow in downloading for those of you who are on dial-up. The files are "Benthic Study" (PDF
8.69MB) and "Shoreline
13.6MB). The total file size of the documents on this page
is about 40.8MB.
Clicking on each link will open the file in a separate browser window. When viewing each map, you
will notice a number written on it (1 through 13).
Shoreline Assessment (Word 24KB) - hard copy available.
A Shoreline Owner's Guide To Healthy Waterfronts (PDF 753KB) - we have free copies of this in a 28 page
booklet form. Let us know if you would like to have a copy.

a part of the other.
Shoreline Survey (PDF

Individual copies of the 2 colour maps. One map overlaps a part of the other:
Benthic Information (PDF 8.69MB).
We should point out that the OSR Crew leader (Vern Bastable) completed studies in Environmental Technology
and Ecology Management He suggested Benthic Studies be performed in the creeks at our lake. In addition,
a few years ago the DFO and MNR biologists recommended we have the same. This year we hope to have
the OSR crew perform one or two studies. Further details will follow.
Suggested Websites from the Shoreline Study: It's important that when you are looking
at the pictures at these websites you should know that only the same species plants as our local trees,
plants, shrubs etc., should be used. Using another species from even another part of the county or
this province can be detrimental toward our lake's forest and shoreline environment. Only local native
species should used. There's a few places around Bancroft where local varieties can be purchased. We
will try to place a list of them here soon, along with details, so, please stay tuned!
