Water Conservation

We’re dedicated to preserving the natural pristine water quality. Nym Lake, as well as Quetico Park, is a spring-fed watershed located just west of the continental watershed divide. Therefore water is in a pristine state as well as the area’s intact wetlands and bogs working efficiently to maintain pure water. Mother Nature at work with natural filtration.

Wastewater Recycling

The wastewater from our central shower and bathroom facility feeds into the wetland. In connection to our wetland we conserve water use with flow-reduced showers; one-pint flush toilets; and non-pressure wash basins in washroom shower-house and flow-reduced faucets in main lodge. Although an abundance of pure water literally surrounds us, we practice water conservation as a commitment to further reduce our ecological footprint.

 

Fuel Efficiency

Another eco-friendly component is the transportation of supplies to the island. We have two pontoon boats with four-stroke motors. These motors are more expensive to purchase but their ecological benefit is outstanding – especially their fuel efficiency. They use a fraction of gas and oil compared to regular two-stroke motors. They also exhaust into the air rather than regular marine motors that exhaust into and pollute the water.
The following list of eco-practices of our Programme delivery touch upon major areas that people can readily relate to. From our “signature piece”: the birch bark Montrealer canoe replica (which people immediately identify as VWP), our environmental “flagship” fully depicts zero emission, sustainability and links the past to the present eco-practices; To the commitment to carry it through to the last detail and incorporate it into every aspect of our everyday lives.
