Table of Contents:
The Oak Ridges Moraine is a 150 km long ridge reaching a height of 125 metres (425 feet). It runs from the Niagara Escarpment to eastern Lake Ontario in the county of Northumberland. A Moraine is made from material deposited at the side or terminus of a glacier or ice sheet. The Oak Ridges moraine was created between two lobes of ice, one to the north and one pushing westward along the valley of lakes Ontario and Erie. In the Moraine there are several kettle lakes; these were formed where large chunks of ice were entrapped in the glacial deposits after the glaciers had receded. The sediments of the Moraine are an important means of naturally purifying our water supply.
