- Queen's University Water Well Stewardship Survey
The School of Environmental Studies at Queen's University in Kingston is working on a research project associated with private groundwater drinking sources (well water).
"This project aims to understand knowledge regarding private well water use and stewardship, with the aim to develop a knowledge-based tool intended for use by private well owners, including cottage owners. We are interested in surveying residents who have a well on their property. The survey is a collaboration between Queen's University, McMaster University, Dublin Institute of Technology and Public Health Ontario.
The information gathered from this survey will contribute to the research project titled, "Exploring, Developing and Evaluating Drinking Water Vulnerability Assessment Measures: Implications for rural Ontario communities using private groundwater drinking sources" (The WELLness Project)."
Participation is voluntary and anonymous. The survey should take 10-12 minutes to complete. If you have a well on your property and wish to participate, the link to the survey is here.
- You can now JOIN or RENEW your MACA Membership Online! Payment is accepted by VISA, MASTERCARD or AMERICAN EXPRESS. For more information visit the Membership page.
- LOVE YOUR LAKE - INDIVIDUAL SHORELINE RESULTS ARE OUT! - All shoreline property owners on our four lakes should by now have received a letter from the Love Your Lake program, with a code to access your individual shoreline evaluation results. Please download and read your individual report! A printed copy of your report can also be ordered online. If you did not receive your letter in the mail, please contact our Lake Steward, Tim Hagarty.
- DID YOU KNOW? - According to the OPP, on average there are between 190 and 200 car/animal collisions reported here in Haliburton every year, most of which involve deer. That puts us second in Ontario behind Manitoulin Island. The OPP would like to remind everyone of some important safety tips to help reduce accidents and injuries from collisions with wildlife. For more information, please read this pamphlet.
