Amendments were also made to the Water Taking Regulation (O. Reg. 387/04) to impose a requirement to obtain a Permit to Take Water on the commercial and industrial users affected by Reg. 450/07, described above. As of Jan. 1, 2009, such persons must have a permit under section 34 of the OWRA, and applications for such permits must be made by June 30, 2008. The amendments also deleted the section of the regulation covering water transfers (s. 10) and the section outlining the regulation's purpose (s.1).
