In 2003, the Wallaceburg Advisory Team for a Cleaner Habitat (WATCH) began as a committee under the direction of the Wallaceburg Chamber of Commerce, in response to a chemical company's spill into St. Clair River.
The advisory group has become an environmental grassroots organization that represents the citizens of Wallaceburg and surrounding areas by engaging in public discourse with Sarnia Petrochemical Industries on spill prevention and effluent monitoring.
WATCH's primary focus is water pollution, but the group also promotes public awareness and education on water quality, the aquatic ecosystem and environmental stewardship.
WATCH is part of the Industrial Pollution Action Team (IPAT) and monitors industrial activities in the area as per the terms set forth in the Ontario Environmental Bill of Rights.
Members of WATCH presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Mr. Wilson Plain Jr. at the June 3, 2019 Aamijiwnaang Council Meeting. The Everbridge Emergency Notification System adopted by Aamjiwnaang and Mr. Plain Jr, the Emergency Management Planner, has provided the much needed leadership for residents of Sarnia, Corunna and downstream communities to support Community Right to Know about St. Clair River and chemical valley manufacturing such as emergency operations, training, flaring, spill incidents, upsets and monthly reports.
