WATCH has decided to include the SDH (hospital) Progress Report on our webpage to honour the many citizens who fought to keep our Sydenham District Hospital and its Emergency Department. It demonstrates the resilience of this community to protect our health and well-being. In the same theme, WATCH's focus is the environmental health and well-being of our community. Thank you to the community in supporting these types of initiatives.

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 several chemical company spills into the St. Clair River which shut down the water intakes of both Wallaceburg and Walpole Island.
During those 20 years WATCH has continued as an environmental grassroots organization that engages the citizens of Wallaceburg and surrounding areas by education, awareness and public dialogue on spill prevention, monitoring of air and water sheds and transparency to promote healthy ecosystems for both humans and other living organisms in our community.
Air, water and land are all connected. Our next focus is to improve understanding on the rights of communities to transparency about impact from industries on a regional and provincial level.
We want to know that
This is a nice website, I like the "look back" page. I enjoyed reading all you have
accomplished and how this group is already 20 years old. It's a good model of what
St Clair County public and private partnerships can do on this side of the river.

I think keeping your balance between Corporations, Government and Citizens is the right approach in the St. Clair River AOC
