AUGUST 20, 2018, RIDEAU VALLEY AND MISSISSIPPI VALLEY WATERSHEDS – The Mississippi-Rideau Source Protection Committee wants your input on their Draft Amendment for the Rideau Valley Source Protection Area Assessment Report and Source Protection Plan (prepared under Ontario’s Clean Water Act).

The Draft Amendment for the Assessment Report identifies:

  • A new wellhead protection area for the new municipal well system for the Western Development Lands in Richmond
  • Revised wellhead protection areas for the existing municipal well systems in King’s Park Richmond and Munster
  • Potential drinking water threats in the new and existing wellhead protection areas

The Draft Amendment for the Source Protection Plan does not include any policy changes but rather simple updates to reflect the addition of new or revised wellhead protection areas in Munster and Richmond, including updated maps and schedules.

There are several ways to view the Draft Amendment:
