NEWS RELEASE
LAKE ERIE SOURCE PROTECTION REGION
*************************
The Lake Erie Source Protection Region is looking for members of the general public to take part on the Community Liaison Group (CLG) for the Guelph-Guelph/Eramosa Water Quantity Policy Development Study. The study area includes the City of Guelph, as well as parts of the Townships of Guelph/Eramosa and Puslinch, and parts of the Towns of Erin, Halton Hills and Milton.

The CLG will provide a forum for stakeholders to provide feedback during the study. The CLG will be formed by the Project Team, and will include representatives from various sectors including business, water users, agriculture, environment, and the general public.

A Tier 3 Water Budget Study, which is a detailed scientific technical study aimed at assessing the risk to current and future municipal drinking water sources under a variety of scenarios, was completed for the Guelph-Guelph/Eramosa Study area in March 2017. As a follow up to the Tier 3 Study, new water quantity policies for the area will be developed under the Clean Water Act, 2006. The Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA), as the lead authority in the Lake Erie Source Protection Region, is managing the Water Quantity Policy Development Study.

For more information on the Water Quantity Policy Development Study, the Terms of Reference for the CLG, and how to submit an application, please visit here.

The deadline for applications is Friday, Jan. 26, 2018.

All applicants must be at least 18 years of age and a resident of the City of Guelph or one of the surrounding municipalities listed above. CLG members are required to attend four workshops that will be held in 2018.

To obtain a paper copy of the application form and information on the CLG, please contact:
