Dear Supervisor Water Resources Unit:
Re: Registry # IA00E0427
Reference # ER-9062
Tay River Perth, Ontario
It has come to my attention that consideration is being given to
allowing OMYA to eventually export millions of gallons of Tay River water
as part of their calcium carbonate plant expansion.
The region has received a shortage of rainfall and what I have
been alerted to the potentially irreversible, uunconscionable damage this
could do to water tables and all the interconnected water systems and
ecosystems fed by these water systems near Perth, in the Ottawa Valley,
and potentially far beyond.
I urge you to delay the granting of any water permits whatsoever
until a thorough, competent environmental impact study is carried out
assuring that removal of such a quantity of water (approximately 1 million
gallons per day) would not harm the Tay River, nor jeapordize the drinking
water supply for the citizens of Perth.
[NAME don't forget to sign the letter!]
