The Need for Environment Hamilton.

Rain now falls in torrents that we have never seen before, and our cities are not built to deal with such fast and heavy amounts of water.

These heavy down pours are not storms that will come once or twice a year – they will be the norm. So how can we protect our homes from flooding?

By better infrastructure and sewer systems, and by better planning.
What we need to stop doing is cutting down trees and putting pavement on the ground.

With all of this flood - rain falling it just has to be absorbed into the ground and the water needs to be taken up by trees. Otherwise it has no where to go but across the surface of the pavement picking up Oil and other pollutants, that flood homes.

How can communities save themselves from the developer mind-set that is 50 years out of date?

The best way is to form a citizens action group – educate yourselves about what laws do exists concerning your environment, and work locally to make changes.

Environment Hamilton is just one of these groups – founded by ordinary citizens that want change. They have managed to install new bus routes, stop polluters, and work with different Corporations to gain a better understanding between business and the people that live next to them.
