Source Protection Plan

Source Water Protection Implementation

The goal of a Source Protection Plan (SP Plan) is to manage or eliminate existing and future activities that could be significant drinking water threats.

One of the methods to implement the SP Plan is to use Land Use Planning tools to direct new development that could pose a threat to drinking water away from vulnerable areas to more appropriate locations.

The City of North Bay has updated our Official Plan to reflect the Source Water Protection Plan. 

A summary of the Source Protection Policies that affect North Bay can be found here Table of Policies Affecting North Bay
