Committee Overview
The Cataraqui SPC was formed in 2007 to guide the protection of drinking water
sources in the Cataraqui Source Protection Area. It is one of 19 committees established across Ontario under the Clean Water Act, 2006.

The SPC oversees the preparation, implementation and amendment of technical report and drinking water source protection policies, along with related public and stakeholder consultation processes. A Cataraqui Source Protection Plan was approved by the Province of Ontario in 2014 and is now implemented across the area.

The SPC members are appointed by the Cataraqui Source Protection Authority, plus a Chair who is appointed by the Ontario Minister of Environment Conservation and Parks. The members represent municipal, economic, industry and community sectors, and work together to support a shared goal of clean and plentiful drinking water sources.
