Las Vegas – On Dec. 7, the National Ground Water Association made space available during Groundwater Week 2016 in Las Vegas for Canadians to discuss the next steps in forming a Canadian Association. Kevin McCray and Trisha Freeman of the NGWA provided NGWA support, the Ontario Ground Water Association said in a news release.

“This was the first chance since Niagara Falls in June for people to gather and discuss this topic and there was a certain amount of reiteration but things quickly moved on to next steps,” the OGWA said. “It is established that the history of the previous association and the circumstances of its demise have no claim on a new association nor is there any fear of future claims.

“A new Canadian association will be established. Kevin McCray kindly offered support from the NGWA legal team to navigate the process necessary to establish a not-for-profit with Corporations Canada.”

Blaine Matuga (blaine@centralinteriorpumps.com) in the Western Region, Peter Gay (pgay@fele.com) in the Eastern Region and Craig Stainton (executivedirector@ogwa.ca) in the Central Region will act as point persons for the next steps.

This group is open to individuals and provincial associations.
