The Ontario Ground Water Association is proud to support Fleming College and the future generations of groundwater professionals. For decades, the OGWA has been granting deserving students with the Archie Watt, OGWA and Ralph Snider awards. 

The funds from our yearly golf tournament directly support the Archie Watt award, which is awarded to the student who has demonstrated commitment to the water well industry. 

This year’s recipient is Sammy Moniz. He is currently working with McLeod Water Wells.


“Thank you very much for selecting me as the recipient of the Archie Watt Award,” Sammy said. “This bursary is helping me pay for the cost of my DZ license training course. I am currently working for McLeod Water Wells, assisting in drilling wells and working on the hours needed for my drilling license. Thanks again for your generosity.”

Once again, we would like to thank our sponsors for supporting this year’s sold-out event that will be held on Sept. 15, 2023.

In other partnerships, a local St. Thomas school classroom selected the OGWA for its not-for-profit fundraising project. We were honoured to receive their support and hope to connect with them in the fall for an education session on the importance of groundwater.
