Two SPC Members Appointed
At their meetings held September 5 and 26, the Hamilton Region and Halton Region Source Protection Authorities appointed two members to the Halton-Hamilton Source Protection Committee. Two positions were vacated in 2019 due to the five year term limitation for sitting members, as described in Ontario Regulation 288/07 under the Clean Water Act, 2006.
Gavin Smuk has been re-appointed as a member representing the agricultural sector. He farms in Hamilton and was nominated by the Hamilton-Wentworth Federation of Agriculture.
Carla Coveart is a new member representing the general public, including environmental and health interests. She is a professional engineer focusing on wastewater infrastructure, municipal drainage and asset management. Her knowledge and local experience will benefit the source protection committee.
