Dec. 11, 2017, Nashville, TN – About 35 interested people met in Nashville on Nov. 7 during the NGWA’s Groundwater Week to discuss next steps for the newly formed Canadian National Ground Water Association.

Craig Stainton, executive director for the Ontario Ground Water Association, chaired the meeting. Stainton said the University of Windsor has agreed to provide a physical address for the organization. The name of the new association will be Canadian National Ground Water Association. The articles of incorporation have been completed and will be submitted to the government.

A discussion centred on membership in the association and it was decided that memberships will be open to provincial associations as well as individual companies and other interested parties. The following individuals volunteered to assume founding director positions: Simon Masse, Jason Friesen, Chris Gerrits, Blaine Matuga, Mike Lamont, Bill Tuytel, Paul Conrad, Kevin Constable, Mario Beauregard, Israel Cormier, Dwayne Graff and Rick Cronin.


The newly elected board will meet via conference call to discuss association objectives. The first AGM will take place in Las Vegas next December in conjunction with Groundwater Week.
