SOILS STUDY TO LOOK AT WATER, FOOD THIS SUMMER
SUDBURY – Preparations are underway for a drinking water survey for the Greater Sudbury area this summer, which will include all municipal drinking water sources, as well as a representative selection of residential wells. “Drinking water is one potential route of exposure to metals in the environment. The City and the Ministry of the Environment (MOE) already closely monitor municipal water sources. We want to do a survey that’s specific to the requirements of the Sudbury Soils Study, which includes a number of residential water sources, as well,” said Chris Wren, director of the SARA Group. The study will be conducted, along with a food consumption survey, this summer.
The next edition of the Study’s Update newsletter will be printed in Northern Life in the next couple of weeks, and will also be mailed to more than 1,000 residents on the study’s mailing list. The newsletter will include updates on study progress, as well as a list of upcoming scientific and public activities. If you would like to be added to the mailing list, please call our toll-free number (1-866-315-0228), or send an email to email@example.com.
The next PAC meeting will be held Tuesday, May 18, 2004 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm, at the Italian Club, 7 Craig Street, Copper Cliff. The next Technical Committee meetings will be held Thursday, June 10, and Thursday, July 8, with public sessions from 9:30 to 10:30 am, in Room C11 of Tom Davies Square.
