Video for businesses – Share what you are doing to protect drinking water sources
Best management practices video for industry
Are you a local industrial or commercial business in Perth, Huron, Bruce, Lambton, Wellington, or Middlesex counties?
Are you following best practices in your industry? Would you like to be part of a video promoting proper storage and containment of chemicals?
If this may be you, we would love to hear from you!
The Ausable Bayfield Maitland Valley Drinking Water Source Protection Region has prepared two well-received videos about work that is taking place by local people to protect drinking water sources in this area.
Here are links to those videos:
We are creating the third video in this three-part series. The new video is to focus on industrial and commercial best management practices by businesses that help add protection to local water supplies by reducing risk.

We are looking for a location that would be interested in hosting our videographer to take some video of best management practices in action that are applicable to local businesses.
For some examples of good practices, please download our free fact sheet for businesses:
We are hoping to get video footage of best practices such as:
- Improving storage of chemicals; Upgrading storage containers and using secondary containment.
- Storing chemicals and pollutants away from drains, wells, and surface water; Keeping floor drains and contaminants separated; adding oil and water entrapment systems to drains.
- Storing fewer chemicals in smaller amounts.
- Finding alternatives to more harmful chemicals.
- Pollution prevention plans.
- Preventing spills; spills kits; spills response plans; Ensuring storage containers include self-containment if there is a spill and that there is capacity to store the spill as well as having the equipment on site to handle a spill if a spill does occur.
- Staff training; posters; signs.
If your industry would be interested in being part of this project, or you know someone who might like to be part of this, please contact Tim at 519-235-2610 or toll-free 1-888-286-2610 or email him through the staff contacts list on this website.
