Due to an unfortunate program funding gap, Pipewatch is taking a temporary hiatus and is expected to return in Spring 2013. What does that mean? Essentially we will need to put a hold on all workshops and trainings for the next few months (which isn't the worst thing given the frigid winter weather!). We'll return in May 2013 with a new set of activities and opportunities for resident involvement.
In the meantime, we still encourage volunteers to visit their pipes on a regular basis and continue to record any instances of fowl odor, sanitary debris, and unexplained flow (aka, pipes that are flowing when there has been no rain/snow). Environment Hamilton is still happy to receive any and all reports and is happy to field any questions about the program and specific pipes. So don't hesitate to give us a shout at 905-549-0900!
Happy Winter and see you all soon!
