Did You Know?

On average, Conservation Authorities plant more than 2M trees annually through their various tree planting programs and stewardship initiatives. This work helps to mitigate climate change by moderating the effects of drought and flooding, reducing soil erosion, reducing GHGs, sequestering carbon, providing habitat for wildlife, creating recreational opportunities, and providing an essential economic resource.



Non-Compliance with a Risk Management Plan

Under the Clean Water Act, the RMO/Is have the ability to issue orders to ensure the protection of drinking water sources. These orders can include, complying with a Risk Management Plan by a specific date, displaying documentation to the RMO/I, and paying for environmental damage. The RMO can also “cause a thing to be done”, which often involves the removal of a drinking water threat at the expense of the person engaged in the activity.
