The MOE is currently conducting consultations on the development of source protection plans under the Clean Water Act, 2006 (the Act). These plans, which are to be submitted to the MOE in 2012, will set out measures to reduce the threats to drinking water sources identified by the multi-stakeholder source protection committees that were convened under the Act. A recently published MOE discussion paper solicits feedback on, among other things, the minimum content requirements for source protection plans and the approaches to reducing risks posed by drinking water threats.

The MOE is accepting comments on the discussion paper until September 23, 2009. For further information, please see www.ebr.gov.on.ca/ERS-WEBExternal/ displaynoticecontent.do?noticeId=MTA2NjQ4&statusId=MTYwMDA4&language=en.
