Ottawa River Action Plan

Every year hundreds of millions of litres of sewer water tainted with untreated sewage is dumped directly into the Ottawa River. The City of Ottawa has a plan to stop this appalling situation and Ecology Ottawa is working to make sure there is funding available to implement the plan.

More than 12,000 people signed the petition here and Ottawa has listened! Check out the most recent update posted on Water Canada.
