Teedon Pit Update: 

In early March WBPOA sent an email to our members with the subject line Take Action to Protect our Water.  We asked our members fwd/send a letter to our government to reject the expansion of the Teedon Pit and order its closure to protect this critical aquifer.  We recognize that this was short notice and not an easy request to complete before the March 25th deadline. We appreciate many of you that managed to make your voices heard. Many community groups like the Friends of the Waverly Uplands continue to work toward protection of the site.  The Waterkeeeps meet every Friday 10:00-2:30 at the Gates of the Teedon Pit Quarry at 40 Darby Road, Tiny Township.

 

The Ministry of the Environment Conservation and Parks is still reviewing a CRH Canada Group application to renew a 10-year permit to take water for aggregate washing at the Teedon Pit.  This application is requesting a licence to take 1.6 million litres per day from a well - and 5.2 million litres per day from a washing pond - 210 days a year for 10 years.
