Launched in 2016, WT@ WATERTODAY.CA is a Canada-wide independent media dedicated to water.
Over the years, WT has earned the trust of its viewers, members, and advertisers; and built the only national water advisory database in Canada.
Yet, the picture remains incomplete.
Water knows no borders and Canada the U.S. and Mexico share several watersheds, it was only natural to look to our southern neighbors to expand our knowledge base.
Our first affiliate in the US - WTNY- is New York state.
It shares the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence River and the Lake Champlain-Richelieu River watersheds with Canada and most of the same issues: contamination, algae invasion, disappearing wetlands and coastline erosion.
We are now developing WTOH (Ohio), and WTGA, (Georgia).
Our US team will apply the same rigorous standards of journalism and provide the same trustable information to New Yorkers, Ohioans and Georgians as WT did to Canadians. Maps on WT and its affiliates form the backbone of our coverage. We invite you to download and share them.

Great interactive maps
Our next step is to add more affiliates in states along our path south and west.
WT and its affiliates are part of the American Water Trust
Already plagued by decades of mismanagement, our water is now threatened by climate change. Time is running out. It is urgent that we have a solid knowledge of its current state to be able to fix it.
