Announcing the first of the WaterScape Webinars
WaterScape III, Resilient Landscapes and Healthy Water in South-central Ontario, will be a webinar based on the following Discussion Document.
These webinars are led by the Ontario Headwaters Institute and supported by The Land Between and Scales Nature Park.
While anyone can attend any webinar, we would like to encourage registration to those who would like to contribute to the strategy. We are encouraging discussion and input from attendees during the webinar.
Some webinars will focus on a set geographic area while others may be dedicated to topics such as aggregates or agriculture. More dates will be made available as soon as possible.
To get us started, we are pleased to announce that the first webinar will be held 10:00 – 11:15 on Friday, March 27. We are calling this the Orillia webinar.
The agenda is simple:
10 – 10:10 Sign in; 10:10 – 10:20 Presentation; 10:30 – 11:15 Discussion.
You can sign up via Eventbright, here.
After you sign up, you will receive an e-mail with links to background information and on how to join the webinar.
- Please Think Thrice about what you Flush
OHI Board member Anum Khan asks us all to refrain from putting any type of so-called “flushable” material down the toilet…unless they would like to see a sewage backup in their home. The Ryerson Report on “Flushability” provides a solid reminder (sorry about that) that the only things deemed acceptable for flushing down the toilet are the 3P’s- pee, poop, and (toilet) paper.
At a time where the COVID19 pandemic has increased the use of towelettes and disinfecting wipes, sewer operators have reported a growing concern and urge residents to be cognizant of the potential clogs and blockages to your toilet and home sewer line. If you don’t want a back-up, please put these products where they belong – and not in the toilet.
