Huron - Kinloss
"The Township of Huron-Kinloss and its residents are
very aware of how fragile the environment around us is. The Pine River
Watershed Initiative Network, originally a committee of council but now
on its own, actively supports and promotes good watershed management
both by helping landowners get funding for environment projects and
their labour. Our farming community is also greatly concerned with
environmental issues and a high percentage of them have completed their
Environmental Farm Plans.
In 2007 the township launched a septic inspection program to ensure the
private sewer systems were being maintained properly and to educate
owners / tenants on the proper use of these systems. Each year
approximately 300 properties are inspected and most of the systems with
major issues are corrected quickly."
