The Mayor and City Council of Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Jeff Guarasci, the community development coordinator with the City of Niagara Falls, has written us to let us know that the municipality “has adopted the Blue Community initiative”.
Niagara Falls is a city of more than 80,000 people located in the Golden Horseshoe Region of Southern Ontario.
To become a blue community, a municipality must:
-respect water as a human right,
-stop the sale of bottled water on city property,
-commit to keep drinking water and waste water treatment and distribution publicly owned and operated.
Congratulations Niagara Falls!
