RAISIN-SOUTH NATION SOURCE PROTECTION PLAN GETS APPROVAL
The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change has approved the locally developed Raisin-South Nation Source Protection Plan. Required under Ontario’s Clean Water Act, the Plan sets out policies to keep contaminants out of surface water and underground sources that supply municipal drinking water systems in the area. The Clean Water Act is one of the province’s responses to the Walkerton tragedy, and is part of Ontario’s strategy to safeguard drinking water from source to tap.
