How is the drinking water source protected?

Ontario's Clean Water Act was created specifically to protect drinking water at the source rather than simply relying on water treatment alone to deliver safe, clean water. Because of scientific work completed under this Act, the Village of Wellington now has a mapped Intake Protection Zone (IPZ) that is protected through policies in the Quinte Region Source Protection Plan.
