Source Water Protection (SWP)
In 2006, the Ontario government passed the
Clean Water Act to protect municipal drinking water throughout Ontario.
As a result, Source Water Protection Regions were designated and Source Water Protection Plans created to provide a framework for protecting drinking water from contamination and overuse. The Town of BWG has partnered with York Region to provide Source Water Protection Services to our residents.
