Working Together To Protect Our Water

Everyone should be able to trust that the water they drink is safe. Protecting the sources of our drinking water - lakes, rivers or underground aquifers - is the first step in ensuring safe drinking water.

The Clean Water Act has been passed by the Ontario legislature to assist communities with protecting their municipal drinking water supplies at the source. Through source protection planning, communities will identify potential risks to local water quality and water supply, and will create a plan to reduce or eliminate these risks. The task of developing a plan will involve watershed residents working with municipalities, conservation authorities, property owners, farmers, industry, health officials, community groups, and others.

Local Source Protection Planning
Under the umbrella of the Trent Conservation Coalition, five conservation authorities are sharing knowledge and expertise to assist with the development of source protection plans for their watersheds: Crowe Valley, Ganaraska, Kawartha, Lower Trent and Otonabee.

We all have a role to play in caring for our water. If we want clean water tomorrow, we need to protect our sources of water today.
