My Watermark is Lake Ontario.

Port Hope utilizes a Drinking Water System which supplies water to the town. A brand new water treatment plant was implemented. We use a membrane filtration system, the Xenon Membrane Treatment and chlorination. We currently use them in two facilities and this system minimize the chemicals. Were the only ones in the North with this technology. Clean, safe drinking water is essential to us.
Watermarks are true stories about you and your connection to a body of water. By archiving your story, you add to a living record of our shared water heritage, protecting these waters for generations to come. So tell us: What is your watermark?

My father first moved us to Kingston as a family when he did some of the first work on the lower lakes reference and it was some of the first water quality work.
