With the first announcement of the “Watermark Project”, the National Water Centre is asserting that discovering, collecting and sharing watermarks is in our national interest. The Project aims to capture 35-million watermarks in the coming years (one for every Canadian).
Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change announced on September 10, 2014 that it will review public reporting about water quality issues during severe weather events. Lake Ontario Waterkeeper triggered the review with a legal application filed in July under the Environmental Bill of Rights.
Think of your greatest memory of water. Were you fishing with your family? Swimming in the ocean? Or, are your memories of water connected to polluted beaches, contaminated drinking water, a spill or accident? No matter where you come from or who you are, water has left its mark on your life.
