Source Water Protection

Source Protection Committee Member: Stephanie Hobbs

Stephanie was appointed to the Committee as a community member-at-large.

Stephanie has a degree in Forestry from the University of New Brunswick, specializing in tree biology and forest ecology, and has a strong environmental background. She has lived in Simcoe County since 2004, first in Hillsdale and currently in Midland. As the Executive Director of the Simcoe/Muskoka Literacy Network, based in Orillia, she leads or participates in community planning consultations on an ongoing basis. Stephanie has served on a variety of non-profit local and provincial Boards of Directors and committees.

Prior to 2004, Stephanie lived in Walkerton. In the wake of the water contamination disaster, she carefully followed the Walkerton Inquiry daily and later participated in the Class Environmental Assessment to determine appropriate water sources and methods of source protection for Walkerton. Stephanie, therefore, brings a unique range of skills and experience, and perhaps a unique perspective, to the Committee. She looks forward to working with other stakeholders and the Committee to develop an effective source protection plan for the region.
