January Event—Water Issues in North Grenville

Join us on Monday, January 18th at the Branch Restaurant, 6.45 for 7pm start.

Sustainable North Grenville is hosting an information evening that will include three guest speakers on the subject of water resources in North Grenville and presenting sustainable solutions to issues facing the community.

Karine Bertrand from SNG will present a broad overview of the state of water resources in North Grenville. A summary of publicly available studies recently completed by the Municipality on the subject of water resources will be presented, and issues facing the community today and in the future will be highlighted. Sustainable methods such as low-impact development and greywater systems will be examined as means to handle the impacts of the estimated doubling of population in North Grenville over the next 20 years.

SNG’s Jeff Goodman will provide a short overview of groundwater and move into a detailed examination of the well records available for Grenville.  It will be a summary of publicly available information that explores well records dating from the late 1940’s to present.
Scott Danford of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority (RVCA) will present its stewardship programs and how they work to improve the health of water bodies in the region, including the Rideau River, Kemptville Creek, and Barnes Creek. Stewardship assistance programs offered by the RVCA to landowners and farmers range from shoreline naturalization, to reforestation, to water quality improvement projects.
