The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) is responsible for the review of planning applications affected by natural environmental hazards and/or natural heritage features to ensure they comply with local and provincial regulations. The NPCA strives to manage the impact of human activities, urban growth and rural activities within the Niagara Peninsula Watershed. Programs focus on the protection and preservation of this unique environment, and on watershed management activities that help keep people and their property safe from flooding and erosion. It also provides advice to municipalities or others on environmental impacts related to watershed and water resource management. The work of the NPCA is also highlighted in the Sustainable Niagara Action Database.
