Smart About Salt Helps Protect Drinking Water

During the Walkerton Inquiry, Justice Dennis O'Connor wrote "The first barrier to the contamination of drinking water involves protecting the sources of drinking water."  To this end, the Province of Ontario passed the Clean Water Act and launched a program to prepare local plans to protect drinking water. These plans are being developed under the purview of Ontario's Conservation Authorities.

Road salt has been identified as one of the threats that need to be considered in preparing Source Protection Plans.

The Smart About Salt Council has prepared a brief SAS and Source Protection.pdf to show how the Smart About Salt Program can help in managing salt loadings to vulnerable source water. This brief has been provided to those leading the Source Protection Process.

We continue to spread the word on behalf of our members about how Smart About Salt Certified Contractors and Facilities are committed to implementing best salt management practices.
