Who We Are
In 2008/2009, the City of London began discussing the idea of a regional wastewater infrastructure initiative to help all communities along the Thames River improve the water quality. As additional partners came on, the focus shifted and expanded to developing a watershed strategy that would update and build on the 1975 Thames River Basin Study.
The Thames River Clear Water Revival Steering Committee was formed in 2011. The committee includes representatives from First Nations that have Traditional Territory in the watershed, a municipality and agencies.
- Aamjiwnaang First Nation
- Bkejwanong Territory (Walpole Island First Nation)
- Caldwell First Nation
- Chippewas of the Thames First Nation
- Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority
- Upper Thames River Conservation Authority

- Environment Canada
- Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs

In addition to the four First Nations that are currently on the Steering Committee and First Nations Engagement Committee, Delaware Nation of the Thames and Oneida Nation of the Thames have participated in the past. Two other First Nations, Kettle and Stony Point First Nation and Munsee-Delaware Nation, have also been invited to participate and receive updates about the project.
