Source Protection Gives Province Plan

With more than 100-thousand people in the Thunder Bay area relying on Lake Superior for drinking water, the Source Water Committee is the first to go the province with a plan to protect it.  Chair Bob Hartley for the Lakehead Region says the report still has to undergo a Provincial revue process.  Hartley is hoping the plan can serve as a model for the rest of the province in response to the Walkerton tragedy that killed 7 people because of e-coli.
