Source Water Protection

Why do we need a Source Water Protection Plan (SPP)?

The Clean Water Act (CWA), 2006, along with its associated regulations, is the Province's most recent legislative standard to ensure Ontario's drinking water resources are protected. It establishes the provincial framework for developing local science- based Source Protection Plans for each Source Protection Area in Ontario. The County of Brant is situated within the Lake Erie Source Protection Region which is comprised of four watershed areas, also known as Source Protection Areas (Kettle Creek, Catfish Creek, Long Point Region and Grand River).

The key objectives of the source protection planning processes are to complete science- based Assessment Reports that identify the risks to municipal drinking water sources, and to develop local Source Protection Plans to reduce the risks, and protect current and future sources of drinking water.

To identify whether Source Protection Policies apply to your property visit the following link;

If you are located within the areas identified within the Source Water Protection please review the Development Application.

If you are making a development application (Building Permit Application and/or Planning Act Application) please fill out the screening form with the assistance of Building or Planning Staff.

To review the policies of Source Protection Plan please visit Source Protection Plan policies for the County.

Keep your eyes open for the new Drinking Water Protection Zone signs!

These signs are part of Ontario's Source Water Protection program under the Clean Water Act, which empowers communities to better protect their local water sources.

  • They are appearing across Ontario to raise awareness about our drinking water sources and to protect our health.
  • Governments at the provincial and local level are placing signs where a pollution spill could have a significant negative impact on our drinking water.
  • You will see the signs as you drive through a drinking water protection zone. Placement of the signs depends on whether drinking water sources are vulnerable in that area.
  • Contact us for more information about Drinking Water Protection Zone Road Signs
