Care about clean drinking water?
Then it's the time for the Greenbelt to protect "areas of critical hydrological significance" according to the expert Land-Use Advisory Panel that just released their recommendations to the Provincial Government.
It's a view shared by a coalition of over 100 environmental and community groups who, just months prior to the release of the panel's report, released a proposal to grow the Greenbelt into our sensitive water systems.
The proposal calls for a 1.5 acres expansion of the Greenbelt in order to protect critical drinking water sources and to ensure an abundant supply of clean water for agriculture and other businesses.
The proposed expansion areas were identified through consultations with community organizations, Conservation Authority staff, professional ecologists/hydrologists, and elected officials.
The province is currently reviewing the panel's recommendations so if you support a expanded Greenbelt that protects fresh water, agriculture, and environmentally sensitive land now's the time to share it!
