Huronia Alarm & Fire Security has made a $4,100 donation to the Elmvale Foundation, a non-profit research organization that provides environmental science education.
Elmvale, Ont., located about 25km north of Barrie, is famous for the purity of its groundwater.
Huronia has deep roots in Elmvale and the townships of Springwater and Tiny.
“This is a tight-knit community with families living here that go back generations. The residents are all keenly aware of the excellent work and environmental stewardship that The Elmvale Foundation has done to protect this unique natural water resource and the surrounding lands,” said Kevin Leonard, COO, Huronia, in a statement.
Huronia’s donation comprises security cameras, an alarm system and monitoring services for the farm property on which the Elmvale Groundwater Observatory is located.
The donated equipment and services “have taken a load off my mind. It’s also given my colleagues a safe and secure place to meet, plan our collective studies, and discuss our findings,” said Dr. William Shotyk, president and founder of the Elmvale Foundation.
