Dear Friends and Members of the Wellington Water Watchers:
We are looking for a few dedicated volunteers to support us in the busy months to come.
Guelph is going to get showered with great events in March: Transition Guelph’s Resilience Festival, H2Go! Festival at City Hall, and the University of Guelph’s Sustainability Week all require our presence. It’s no coincidence; both the UN World Water Day and Canada Water Week take place in March.
Meanwhile, the developers of the Dolime Quarry and Nestlé Waters Canada are each going to court with the Ministry of Environment over their Permits to Take Water. The outcomes of these hearings could have a direct impact on the safety and sustainability of our drinking water sources, so we need to keep a close eye on them and ensure that the public is participating as much as they are legally entitled to.
If you have a knowledge of local water conservation issues, have time in your life to commit to a cause, and want to help shape Wellington County’s water future, we encourage you to join us.
To apply, email [email protected] with your résumé.
Thank you and see you all in March!
Board Member – the Wellington Water Watchers
