Environment

The Township of Perth East is located at the headwaters of river systems which flow outwards in three directions. All water from Perth East ultimately ends up in either Lake Huron to the north, Lake St Clair to the west, or Lake Erie to the South.

As such, Perth East is a member municipality of four different Conservation Authorities which oversee and regulate all work which is in or near bodies of water or floodplains.
