The Lake Erie Source Protection Region is one of 19 in Ontario created to implement drinking water source protection planning under the Clean Water Act 2006.
The region includes four watersheds, called Source Protection Areas in the Act:
The development of the plans is led by the Lake Erie Region Source Protection Committee. It is a multi-stakeholder committee with members representing those with a stake in drinking water issues: residents, municipalities, farmers, businesses, industries and others.
The committee meets about four times a year to carry out its duties. Most meetings are held at the Grand River Conservation Authority head office, 400 Clyde Rd., Cambridge.
Meetings are open to the public. View our Meeting page to see the meeting schedule, agendas and minutes.
The committee is supported by program staff who work at the head office of the GRCA office in Cambridge. They are joined by staff members of the other three conservation authorities. View the Contact Us page for more information.
The committee and staff members also work closely with municipal staff throughout the Lake Erie Region.
