Local Drinking Water Source Protection Plan Public Consultation

Proposed amendments to the approved Source Protection Plan and Assessment Reports for the Saugeen, Grey Sauble, Northern Bruce Peninsula Source Protection Region are now available for review and comment.

The draft amendments include new/amended Wellhead Protection Areas for Blairs Grove Well 3 in the Township of Huron-Kinloss, Durham Well 2A in the Municipality of West Grey, and Dundalk Well D5 in the Township of Southgate. There is also a new East Linton Events-based Area for large fuel storage in the Township of Georgian Bluffs. Furthermore, changes to salt application and storage threat policies will result in changes that apply to higher risk areas where salt/risk management plans will be required.

These updates under Section 36 of the Clean Water Act (2006) can be found on the home.waterprotection.ca website on the Source Protection Plan page – Consultation 2021 Directory.

The Source Protection Committee will consider any comments received and make revisions as necessary.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions there won’t be any public meetings, however staff are planning to deliver an information Webinar on Wednesday, November 10, followed by a Q&A session to allow for individual comments to be discussed. Details for this session will be posted on our website and social media platforms.

Comments on the proposed amendments to the Source Protection Plan can be submitted in writing, by November 19, 2021 at 4:30 p.m., to:
