A few hours after we sent out our last e-update, something exciting happened, and we just had to share the news with you.
On Dec. 5, the Manitoba government denied the City of Winnipeg’s request for a two-year extension to develop a plan for phosphorus reduction at the North End Water Pollution Control Centre (NEWPCC).
Instead, the province is requiring that an interim phosphorus reduction plan be in place by Jan. 31, 2020. It will also assist the city move forward on plans to fully upgrade the NEWPCC.
To accomplish these goals, the provincial government is requiring Winnipeg to participate in two newly formed committees, to be co-chaired by city and provincial representatives. LWF has been invited to sit on one of these committees. Head to our website for more information on this new development.
Thank you to everyone who joined us in speaking up on this issue. Decision-makers have heard our collective voice. The efforts of lake-lovers are making a difference.
