Celebrate World Water Day with SNG – March 21st

Celebrate World Water Day with Sustainable North Grenville (www.sustainablenorthgrenville) at the North Grenville Public Library (1 Water Street) on March 21st, from 6:30-9:00 pm.

Water is a precious resource. In North Grenville, how is our water shared? How do we access it? How do we protect it? How do we think about it?

The evening will include a screening of the documentary Liquid Assets (http://liquidassets.psu.edu/). Joining us to give an overview of North Grenville’s water infrastructure will be Mike Finley, Superintendent of Environmental Services for the Municipality of North Grenville. Sommer Casgrain-Robertson, Co-Project Manager of the Source Water Protection Department, for the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (www.rvca.ca) will also be joining us to talk about our local watershed and the importance of protecting our ‘source’ water.

Liquid Assets examines how integral water is to individuals and communities. It looks at the importance of water infrastructure and assets for public health and economy, the complexity of local water systems, financial considerations for sustaining water infrastructure, water and sewage rates, and how watersheds are shared between communities and regions.

There is no cost to the event, but in support of local non-profit organization, the Ryan’s Well Foundation, donations will be gratefully accepted (www.ryanswell.ca). Ryan’s Well Foundation works to improve the lives of people and their communities in developing countries through projects that offer access to safe water.

Coffee, tea, and light snacks will be provided.
