Since early August, we’ve met with eight mayoral candidates: Chris Clacio, Scott Gillingham, Kevin...

These blooms are caused by excess phosphorus. We need your help to ensure our elected officials understand the impact of continued inaction on phosphorus reduction.

On July 21, city council passed two important motions that put us on the path towards accelerated phosphorus compliance at Winnipeg’s largest sewage treatment plant.

Improved interim solution gets approval

Winnipeg’s city council approved funding for an updated plan for interim phosphorus removal at the North End Water Pollution Control Centre (NEWPCC).
