York Region’s 2017 Source Water Protection Implementation Annual Report provides a snapshot of progress made in protecting municipal drinking water before it reaches your tap.

The 2017 report highlights work to identify and manage potential threats to drinking water and ensure proposed developments in vulnerable areas undertake careful planning to ensure the safety of our drinking water supply.

York Region’s Source Water Protection Incentive Program continues to play an important role in encouraging businesses to make changes to protect municipal drinking water sources. Among its achievements in 2017, York Region provided more than $43,000 to businesses and farmers to implement required risk management measures as part of its incentive program.

In 2018, the program will continue reviewing development proposals in vulnerable areas, establish new risk management plans, complete inspections and continue to provide education for sites within vulnerable areas.

Under the Clean Water Act, 2006, municipalities are required to submit annual reports on their source water protection implementation efforts. The sixth annual report summarizes information requested by the Source Protection Authorities.
