Wear Orange on September 30th in support of Indigenous communities!

September 30th is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, in support of the Indigenous population.

Indigenous communities are disproportionally impacted by contaminated groundwater and source water protection issues. These communities are faced with considerable barriers including limited access to the technology and financial support necessary to mitigate impacts to groundwater sources.

At Morwick G360, our team is passionate about supporting the Indigenous population through groundwater research, and helping them to overcome these barriers. We currently have ongoing research with the First Nations community in Fort Liard’s Basin, Northwest Territories and source water protection research with the First Nations community in Ontario.

As said by MG360’s Dr. Jana Levison, “We have been working for several years with some community members from Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation on source water protection work that is informed by linking Indigenous and scientific research methods. It is a privilege to be able to engage with the community on this important water protection research.”

Tomorrow, please join us in showing your support for the Indigenous population, and WEAR ORANGE!
