Boy is this ever counter intuitive! One of the fastest growing areas in Canada and we are lowering our water consumption. Seems impossible. Apparently conservation programs are indeed working combined with the loss of numerous local manufacturing plants. Whoa what is this? Economic activity is bad for our environment. Who would have thought it? Yesterday's K-W Record carries the following story "Region's water use dropping despite growth". Also implicated in this good news story are municipalities locating and repairing water main leaks. From stories I've heard, this may not necessarily include the city of Cambridge. There will be a celebration of World Water day at the University of Waterloo today and from 11:30 to 1:30 pm. there will be a "Soupfest" fundraiser for the Children's Water Education Council at Kitchener City hall.
