The Quinte Conservation Source Committee completed a Section 36 Amendment to our Source Protection Plan and Assessment Report under the Clean Water Act. The Source Protection Plan has been in effect since January 1, 2015, and contains policies that help manage threats to drinking water near municipal wells and intakes. The changes to existing policies were required to improve policies and adapt to the new Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks technical rules. 

The Amendment's public consultation phase concluded on February 22, 2024.
