Drinking Water Supply Protection
Canada has a rich supply of drinking water and yet it is continually under threat. The Village has taken careful steps to adequately protect their groundwater supply wells through the establishment of a “Designated Wellfield Protection Area (WPA).” Through public consultation and provincial government direction, the Village established 2 designated wellfield protection zones. Restrictions on land use and development in this three layered zone will help protect the Village’s drinking water now and into the future. This will help residents of today feel safe while insuring our ability to grow in the future.
