Lake Ontario Waterkeeper - Tue, 12/31/2013 - 10:14am

Lake Ontario Waterkeeper has the best supporters in the world!

In November, we confirmed that the City of Toronto dumped 1-billion litres of untreated sewage into Lake Ontario during the July 8th storm. Lake Ontario Waterkeeper asked for your financial support to help us focus on sewage and stormwater pollution in 2014.

We set a fundraising goal of $10,000. To date, you have helped us raise $17,547. Thank you so much for your support. Your contribution will help Lake Ontario Waterkeeper’s efforts to make it mandatory for the City of Toronto to alert the public when there is a sewage spill.

If you still want to make a financial contribution to make an impact on recreational water quality, there is still time!

You can donate in 3 ways:
1. Donate online through our Toronto Sewage fundraiser.
