OMYA - Tay River Appeal

Collection of materials about setting limits on Tay River water-taking

CELA has represented a local citizens group that objected to the issuance of a large water-taking permit to OMYA Canada Inc. (a calcium carbonate processing facility). The permit authorized the company to increase its water-taking up to 4,500 cubic metres per day from the Tay River near Perth, Ontario. CELA's interventions contributed to the permit being limited to 1,483 cubic metres of water per day and for not longer than six years. 

Below are court submissions, publications, media releases and newsletter articles written by CELA counsel about this case.
