Stand Up with Tiny Township!
Rally at Site 41 – Summer of 2009
On January 14th 2021, a 10 year permit to take water was granted for use in the Teedon gravel pit in Tiny Township, Ontario. We are asking you to take action against this.
The Teedon pit seeks to take water from the adjacent aquifer that is thought to have the purest water in the world! It is no surprise that local residents are concerned for their drinking water as approximately 80% of local residents rely on private wells from this aquifer for their drinking water.
Before 2018 when the Teedon pit’s last PTTW expired, studies showed that the removal of the protective layers on the aquifer were disrupted to the quality of the water and lead to both quality and quantity concerns for residents drinking water. You can learn more in this article, or by visiting their website.
Yet again we see our government granting corporate water takers permits to take water at the expense of the wellbeing of residents, the environment and of course, water.
Stand up with Tiny Township and elevate the message of the local council “we are fundamentally opposed to the extraction and washing of aggregate in environmentally sensitive areas” by submitting your comments to the Environmental Registry of Ontario
Let’s revoke this Permit to Take Water immediately!
