SCRA receives continued support from Plains Midstream Canada

Plains Midstream Canada continues to support the St. Clair Region Conservation Authority’s (SCRCA) Spring Water Awareness Program (SWAP) which teaches students about the hazards of spring floodwaters.

For the sixth year, the company committed $5,000 which allowed the SCRCA to deliver the program free of charge at local schools.

“Through our annual Spring Water Awareness Program, we talk with students about the potentially dangerous conditions associated with streams and rivers during the spring, and provide them with safety guidelines,” stated Myra Spiller, Conservation Education/Community Partnership Technician at the SCRCA, in a media release.

“Thanks to Plains Midstream Canada’s long-standing support of the program, we have been able to reach thousands of students with this important safety message.”

The program focuses on the hazards associated with the cold, deep, and fast-flowing waters of the spring season and engages students through age-appropriate and curriculum-connected experiments, activities, and games, that take place in their schoolyard.

“It’s important to us to contribute to causes and services which lead to stronger, safer, and healthier communities where our employees live and work,” said Ian Forster, Community Relations Advisor at Plains Midstream Canada, in a press release.

“We are very proud to continue supporting SCRCA’s Spring Water Awareness Program. It’s fantastic to see the positive impact the program offers by education kids about water safety and safe enjoyment of our region’s watercourses.”

Over 1,000 students from 7 different schools participated in the 2024 program.
