Clean drinking water is our inheritance. You can’t put a price on it.
Wellington Water Watchers is a non-profit organization founded in 2007 dedicated to the protection, restoration and conservation of drinking water in Guelph and Wellington County. We are primarily run by volunteer citizens from Guelph-Wellington who are committed to the protection of local water and to educating the public about threats to the watershed.
Our organization rests upon three pillars: Educate. Advocate. Celebrate.
