WINCHESTER – The Clean Water Program, run by the South Nation Conservation Authority, has received $5,000 from a Winchester business.
Parmalat Canada made the contribution last week, which brings the company’s donations to over $300,000 over the past 18 years.
The Clean Water Program provides cost-share grants to landowners to make improvements on their land to improve water quality, like tile drainage, erosion control and fencing along rivers and streams.
CNSA said the total value of projects to date, including landowner contributions, is over $1.3 million.
Those projects include a phosphorus trading program, which has reduced phosphorus in the South Nation River by 22,000 kilograms, said the authority.
