Item 5: A presentation by the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority(CRCA) re: the “Drinking Water Source Protection Plan”… The CRCA has been charged by the province (which is funding the study) to develop a plan pursuant to the Clean Water Act with respect to primarily Kingston’s water supply. The presentation was made to Frontenac Islands as a small part of Garden Island falls within the area that Kingston draws its water. At this time the study is only looking at municipal water supplies not private wells nor discharges. It is suggested that when the study is completed the plan will be similar to an Official Plan ie will provide controls over development or actions that may take place within the defined area that drinking water is drawn. There is a question as to how much teeth the study will have based on the findings and then the funding available to the municipalities.
