Windsor-Essex County has declared a climate change emergency after experiencing a harsh flooding season, resulting in an flood watch of over 175 days in 2019. With the dramatic change in climate, more flooding and adverse weather can be expected. As such, it is time for our community members to come together and take action against climate change! At Essex Powerlines, we are committed to making our communities a greener and more environmentally friendly place to live!
But we need your help!
