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 Assesment 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.
