Local Source Protection Committee approves Protection Plan
February 24, 2014 – Representatives from the Raisin and South Nation Watersheds have worked collaboratively for the past six years to develop a Plan to protect Municipal drinking water. The Source Protection Plan contains a number of policies that ensure certain activities are managed to keep drinking water safe.
Many people live and work within our local Source Protection Areas. The Source Protection Plan recognizes that most landowners, businesses, and farmers are already using best management practices on their property. The policies will fill in regulatory gaps but avoid duplication and ‘red tape.’
The local Plan has been sent to the Raisin Region and South Nation Source Protection Authorities and will be forwarded to the Minister of the Environment for final review and approval. For more information please visit: www.yourdrinkingwater.ca
