Welcome to Halton-Hamilton source protection region
Working to protect your
drinking water sources

Our water resources are vital to all aspects of our lives, including our health. It is important that we ensure there is a clean and abundant source of drinking water – for now and in the future. Ontario’s Clean Water Act, 2006 provides for a community initiative where municipalities, residents, business owners, provincial agencies, conservation authorities and others work together to protect existing and future drinking water sources.  

Under the Clean Water Act, Conservation Halton and the Hamilton Conservation Authority together form the Halton-Hamilton Source Protection Region. They support a local multi-stakeholder, decision-making Source Protection Committee. Explore our website to learn more about the underlying science and the policies that protect municipal drinking water sources of Lake Ontario and groundwater aquifers, which serve 95% of the residents in the Halton-Hamilton watersheds.
