Non-Potable Requests for Brownfield Development

Brownfields are lands on which industrial or commercial activity took place, such as factories, gas stations or where spills have occurred, which may need to be cleaned up before they can be redeveloped. 

The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change has developed standards (non-potable site condition standards) that are intended for use at properties where a municipal supply of drinking water is available and there are no wells located in the area.  This ensures that the application of the standards does not pose a risk to local water supplies.

When a brownfield is being redeveloped for a more sensitive use, such as residential development, property owners are required to notify local and regional municipalities under Ontario Regulation 153/04 of their intent to use non-potable site condition standards.
