Source Water Protection and Clean Water Act



The Province has introduced legislation and regulations that seek to protect drinking water at its source. In 2007, the CTC Source Protection Committee was established to oversee development of policies for a Source Protection Plan to achieve the goal of protecting drinking water at its source for watersheds within the Credit Valley, Toronto Region, and Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authorities (CLOCA) jurisdictions. Whitby is located within CLOCA's jurisdiction. The CTC and Ontario Ministry of Environment (MOE) websites are invaluable resources for background information.
