Well Water Survey | Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health

 

Well Water Survey


Water Drop

Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health (WDGPH) and the University of Guelph are inviting anyone who uses a private drinking water well to complete a survey so Public Health can improve our well water testing services.

What Does Participation Involve?

The survey will take about 5‑7 minutes to complete. You can also pick up a paper copy of the survey at any of our water sampling bottle pick up locations.  

Eligibility to Participate

You must own or live on a property that is serviced by a private drinking water well, be willing to provide your address and be eighteen years old or older to fill out this survey. Ypu are asked for your address because it will be used to link your survey answers to any testing results obtained through the well water testing service offered through Public Health. If your name appears with any water testing results, your name will be removed from the water testing result before the survey responses are linked to the water testing results. You are not asked to provide your name in this survey. Addresses or other identifying information will not be included in any report. 

The final report will be posted for community members and partners on the WDG Public Health website. Findings may be presented to the WDG Public Health Board of Health, published, presented at conferences or to other health units or municipalities. You will not be identified in the report. Direct quotes will be used only if they do not identify you.Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health Logo

Green Line

9:30 a.m.
Town of Mono - Council Chambers
(347209 Mono Centre Road)

Green Line

Purpose    

Official Plan Amendment 41 (OPA 41), if approved by Town Council, would fulfill a Provincial mandate under Section 2.1 of the (2014) Provincial Policy Statement (PPS) to identify a Natural Heritage System (NHS) in Ecoregions 6E in which the Town of Mono resides.  OPA 41 also fulfills a key policy under Section 4.2.2 of the Provincial Growth Plan for relevant lands in the Town as well as supporting related key goals in the associated Provincial Plans for the Greenbelt, Niagara Escarpment and Oak Ridges Moraine.

A key policy theme of OPA 41 is to protect and enhance natural heritage features and areas in conjunction with decisions on applications for proposed developments and/or site alterations under Part III of the Planning Act.  The natural heritage policies in OPA 41 will broadly protect, conserve, and enhance the Town’s natural heritage features and areas and will also provide the local basis for a future County-wide NHS to be undertaken as part of the Dufferin County Official Plan Municipal Comprehensive Review.

No key map is provided as OPA 41 is a Municipal-wide Amendment.

OPA 41 can be reviewed at the Town Municipal Office during regular business office hours and is also available online: OPA 41

Mono Nordic Trail Run

A long time Mono Nordic Ski Club racer, Alexander Maycock, recently brought forth the idea to host a Mono Nordic trail running race at Park. As a ski racer at Mono Nordic for over 8 years, the 18 year old has had the privilege of racing all across North America and parts of Europe, including Austria and Switzerland.Alexander This past winter, he reached a big goal by earning a Canadian National Championship gold medal in the team sprint event at the 2018 Canadian Ski Nationals
in Thunder Bay. In addition to his early University ski racing success, he represented Orangeville District Secondary School earning two OFSAA Championship titles.

Alexander has big goals ahead of him including to represent Canada at the FISU World University Games in March of 2019 in Russia and 2021 in Switzerland. He has goals of representing Canada at the World Junior Championships and World Under 23 Championships to eventually ski for Canada on the World Cup Circuit and at the Olympics in 2022, 2026 and 2030. Alexander has dedicated about 8 years of consistent training to Nordic skiing, and this year he has plans to train over 650 hours in order to work towards his ambitious, yet achievable goals. The cost of this training will be significant. His 2018-2019 ski year will cost him over $10, 000. 

The Town Council supports Alexander Maycock’s ambitions to be named to Canada’s Olympic Team and have waived the $216 rental fee for the Monora Park multipurpose room. The $95 rental fee for the Monora Park grounds has also been waived for the purpose of holding the “Mono Nordic Trail Run.” The "Mono Nordic Trail Race" is a fundraising event to support Alexander Maycock and will take place on Saturday, August 4, 2018. 

Alexander and Town Council

To view the proposal and learn more about the Mono Nordic Trail Run, please see the correspondence from Todd Taylor, President of the Mono Nordic Ski Club below:

Dufferin County - Bringing Broadband to Everyone

Residents of Dufferin County, farmers and business owners are encouraged to participate in a brief web survey to help build "broadband for everyone" in Southwestern Ontario, Caledon, Dufferin and the Niagara Region.  

When it comes to broadband Internet, there are considerable disparities in access and capacity between our rural and urban communities. The social and economic value of high-speed connectivity is set to explode over the next ten years, and unless we act now, those disparities will only grow wider and more serious in their implications. For this reason, The County of Dufferin, has partnered with SouthWestern Integrated Fibre Technology Inc. (SWIFT) to collect information about how residents, farms and businesses currently use the Internet. Your participation in this 15-minute survey is completely voluntary and you may opt out of any question in the survey. All of your responses will be kept confidential. They will only be used for statistical purposes and will be reported only in aggregated form. Participants should have their Telecom Service Provider name and contract information at hand.  
To complete the survey, please visit www.swiftnetwork.ca/survey

About the SWIFT Initiative

SouthWestern Integrated Fibre Technology Inc. (SWIFT) is a not-for-profit, collective broadband initiative that is funding the construction of an affordable, open-access, ultra-high-speed fibre-optic regional broadband network for everyone in Southwestern Ontario, Caledon and the Niagara Region. To overcome our region's broadband infrastructure gaps, SWIFT has developed a long-term plan to help more than 3.5 million Ontarians, or 25% of Ontario's population, to connect and keep pace in a changing digital world. The project is leveraging $180 million in combined investments by the federal and provincial governments and over $17 million in investments by municipalities across the region. SWIFT membership is open to any community or organization that needs connectivity to any of its locations. Members benefit from SWIFT's significant procurement expertise, including aggregated demand, negotiated rates, and support in preparing RFPs for broadband services. As a buying group, SWIFT also ensures greater competition between telecom service providers which will lead to better services at lower prices in member communities. https://www.dufferincounty.ca/files/releases/2018-05-01_Help_us_bring_br...

2018 Fire Hydrant Maintenance

Public Notice

Fire Hydrant Flushing and Maintenance Programs

May 1 to July 31, 2018

  • Cardinal Woods Drinking Water SystemAnnual Fire Hydrant Flushing
  • Island Lake Drinking Water System

Users of the above noted water systems should be aware that from May 1 to July 31, 2018 between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday each week, Orangeville Water Works Staff and contractors will be periodically inspecting and flushing fire hydrants and conducting flow tests as part of our fire hydrant maintenance program.

Due to sedimentation, the flushing may cause discolouration of the water, so please check your cold water supply before using.  If discolouration does occur, let the cold water run until it clears.  The Town expects this preventative maintenance process to have minimal impact on residents.

Users of the Town of Mono water systems are also reminded that Water Works Staff will continue to regularly flush fire hydrants in some areas on subsequent Wednesdays as part of an ongoing maintenance program.  Again, the water should be checked for discolouration before use on those days.

Your cooperation and understanding during the fire hydrant maintenance programs is appreciated.
