Source Water Protection

The Source Water Protection division of the NPCA is responsible for implementing the Provincial Government’s Source Water Protection Initiatives and our core Water Quality Monitoring Program.

All of us in Ontario have a role to play in protecting our fresh water. Protecting water at its source is the first step in ensuring we all have access to safe drinking water. By stopping contaminants from getting into sources of drinking water, we can provide the first line of defense in the protection of our environment and our health.
