Source Water Protection

Source Water Protection

Ensuring safe drinking water is important to the health and well-being of our communities.

This is the website for the Source Water Protection program for the South Georgian Bay Lake Simcoe Source Protection Region, one of 19 Source Water Protection Regions in the Province of Ontario.

Source water protection is about protecting Ontario's municipal drinking water supplies. It provides for new tools to protect water, through the Ontario Clean Water Act, 2006, and designates the creation of locally developed Source Protection Plans.

What is a Source Protection Plan?

This is a document that was written by the local Source Protection Committee, containing policies that protect municipal sources of drinking water at their source.
