April 23rd Deadline
to Save Tiny Township’s Water!
The world’s purest groundwater is under threat
from a gravel pit expansion in the recharge area for Tiny
Township’s pristine aquifer. Dufferin Aggregates has applied for
a 10 year permit to take water at its Teedon Pit which is just
east of the lands that almost became Dump Site 41 back in 2009.
Click here to read more about the problem.
FoTTSA is encouraging every one of
our members to individually urge the government NOT TO RENEW
this permit. Click here
to easily send an already written email to the Ontario government's Environmental
Registry before the deadline on April 23rd. You can also go
directly to the Environmental
Registry and independently make your comment there.
Please send in your own email comment and forward this
message to all your members. Help us protect the Tiny Township
aquifer that holds the cleanest water in the world!
Tiny Township is currently reviewing its
Official Plan. A Public Information Meeting was held on Aug.
25th during which a consultant introduced the Draft OP.
Residents and beach associations were encouraged to send in their
comments to Tiny’s Planning Department by Sept. 30th.
At the WBPOA Mtg. on Sept. 2nd members discussed
their concerns regarding several sections of the Draft OP. The
following is WBPOA’s Submission which includes the input received
from members at that meeting.

July 30th Phrag Dig Tackles a New Area
On Sunday July 30, 30+ phrag diggers
met at Juniper Trail and removed phrags from designated properties and
along the shore line. As well, phrag roots and stalks lying on the beach
were collected. This was a new area that was identified as problematic.
The phrag diggers made short work of the area and moved down to Tripp
Lane to clean up the shore line and stray phrags from the last dig.
55 bags of phrags were collected. It was great to see new faces and
welcome back familiar diggers. The group was comprised of multiple
generations out to work together to preserve our beach! Diggers received
a coupon for a free ice cream treat from Don and Jean at the Beach Frog.
Many thanks Don and Jean for your continued support.
final phrag dig for 2017 is:
