Public comments invited on updates to the Drinking Water Source Protection Plan for the Grand River watershed

Members of the public are invited to read and comment on the Draft Updated Drinking Water Source Protection Plan for the Grand River watershed. The plan has been prepared under the Clean Water Act, 2006 to protect municipal sources of drinking water and ensure their sustainable use into the future.

Since then, updates have been proposed that affect Dufferin County (Township of Melancthon and Township of Amaranth), Oxford County (Community of Bright), the Region of Waterloo, Perth County (Township of Perth East), the County of Wellington (Township of Puslinch and Town of Erin) and the City of Brantford.
