In 2004, the Friends of the Coves Subwatershed released the Coves Subwatershed Plan. The plan factors in information gathered in past studies in the area as well as new research performed by professional consultants during the preparation of the plan. The plan concludes with 59 specific recommendations on how groundwater, aquatic ecosystems, terrestrial ecosystems and cultural heritage features in the Coves Subwatershed can best be protected.
The Coves Subwatershed Plan has since been endorsed by the City of London, the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority and the Old South Community Organization. The City of London has struck a committee to oversee the implementation of the 59 recommendations laid out in the plan. The Implementation Committee meets monthly and includes representation from Friends of the Coves Subwatershed, the City of London, Ministry of Environment, Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, Old South Community Organization and London's Advisory Committee on Heritage.
