||Public participation is essential
to our efforts to address, monitor, and prevent spills in our
waterways. As use and enjoyment of the waterway increases, more
and more people are becoming stewards of the local environment
by reporting contamination and dumping.
Veins of Life Watershed Society has made a significant contribution
to helping these efforts by posting signage at all outfalls
on the Gorge. These signs list the outfall number, thus speeding
spill response and sourcing. VOLWS has also linked local spill
reporting to the Provincial
Emergency Program (PEP) by publicizing the toll-free
PEP number, 1-800-663-3456.
