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. For more information on how York Region works to protect our drinking water, check out their page.
