Deep Water Wells Standing Committee

The dates are THIS Thursday, June 12th, and Wednesday, June 25th.  The Standing Committee of the PEI Legislature that has been listening to information about the issue of lifting the moratorium on high capacity wells for irrigation is meeting again twice this month.

Both meetings start at 1PM and are held in the Coles Building, which is the red brick building right next to Province House in Charlottetown.  The entrance faces Richmond Street and is near St. Paul’s Church and Murphy Community Centre.  There are both metered and free parking spaces in the area, but Richmond Street (Victoria Row) is now closed to cars.

Islanders are invited to be part of the “public gallery” in the Pope Room where the meetings are held.  It’s good for the Committee to see public interest in this issue.

This week there will be presentations from Cavendish Farms and the P.E.I. Potato Board, and from the Atlantic Chapter of the Sierra Club and Phil Ferraro from the Institute for Bioregional Studies.

The June 25th meeting will have a presentation by Dr. Cathy Ryan, who was a panelist at the Water Forum on May 20th, and others. More details are here:
