Source Water Protection

The protection of drinking water sources is the first of the multi-barrier approaches recommended by Mr. Justice O'Connor in his Walkerton Inquiry recommendations. CELA has remained heavily involved, since the Walkerton Inquiry, in ensuring all of the Inquiry recommendations are implemented.

The linked files in this collection provide CELA's detailed and summary publications and any related media releases on this topic. See also our collection of maps of source protection areas and regions in Ontariom and our collection of Fact Sheets about Source Water Protection.
