Drinking Water Protection Zone Road Sign Scavenger Hunt

Win a Cool Prize!

Are you looking for something fun to do with the kids? The Mattagami Region Source Protection Committee welcomes all junior scavenger hunters and their adult assistants (parents/guardians) to take part in the Drinking Water Protection Zone (DWPZ) Road Sign Scavenger Hunt. There are 12 signs to be found within the City of Timmins. These signs are installed in areas where our drinking water source (Mattagami River) is the most vulnerable to spills and contamination.  Search out one of the DWPZ Road Signs in the Scavenger Hunt and be entered to win one of two Yetti mugs.

To play, grab your smartphone, fill up your re-usable water bottle and head out to explore. When you find one of the Drinking Water Protection Zone road signs in the hunt (Park Avenue, Feldman Road, Riverside Drive, Norman Street, Wallingford Road, Shirley Street North, Dalton Road) take a picture and post it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #SourceWaterTimmins. If you don’t use social media, you can email your images to spc@timmins.ca, and use the hashtag #SourceWaterTimmins as the subject line.

One image per person per scavenger hunt item with the street name of the sign. Submissions will be accepted until June 30, 2021. Winners will be selected randomly and contacted through the platform they used. No purchase necessary.

Submitting a photo grants the Mattagami Region Source Protection Committee permission to share or repost the photo.
