Guelph, Ont. – Regarded as Canada’s largest community to rely almost completely on groundwater for its water supply, the City of Guelph is presenting water-awareness events aimed for residents of all ages.

Fix-a-Leak Week was marked March 16 and 17 to increase awareness about how much water is wasted through leaking fixtures. The public was encouraged to visit this website to learn how to detect, fix and prevent leaks.

Several activities have been planned for Wacky Water Week tomorrow from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Guelph Public Library’s main branch. The event is geared for families to provide information about water conservation, treatment, protection and the difference between stormwater and wastewater. One of the day’s events is the Water Hero Wander.
