Have you seen the new Source Protection Road Signs?
Two new road signs that will help protect Milton's drinking water have been installed on Highway 401 near Kelso Conservation Area. There are 780 drinking water protection zone signs being installed across Ontario by the provice and local municipalities to mark locations along major roadways where municipal drinking water sources are vulnerable.
The signs will help alert emergency responders and the public to sections of the road where accidental spills could travel quickly, contaminating public drinking water sources. The goal is to accelerate the notification process to Halton Region and close the water supply before spilled contaminants can enter.
