Plan to protect drinking water submitted to province for approval
from Water World
The CTC (Credit Valley, Toronto and Region, and Central Lake Ontario) Source Protection Committee is pleased to announce the submission of the Proposed Source Protection Plan for approval to the Ontario Minister of the Environment. The Plan sets out policies which, when implemented, will reduce threats to sources of drinking water in the Region. Protection of drinking water sources stems from the incident at Walkerton, Ontario in 2000 where seven people died, and thousands became ill due to the contamination of the town's drinking water. The subsequent commission lead by Justice Denis O'Connor recommended protection plans be developed for drinking water sources around the province. The province responded with the Clean Water Act that enshrined drinking water source protection into law.
