Drinking water source protection is the first step in a multi-barrier approach to protecting our sources of drinking water such as lakes, rivers and groundwater before they become contaminated or depleted. Water is critical to all aspects of our lives. Protecting water sources is important as it can help ensure there is enough safe water, now and in the future. Learn how both you and the City of Hamilton can protect our drinking water.
Hamilton Water is committed to providing youth in our communities with the knowledge, awareness, and tools to become champions of water and the environment. Creating a positive change in the attitudes and beliefs of our future leaders and decision-makers is the first step towards solving the water issues we face on a local, national and global scale.
