June 21st, 2017 Workshop

The Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority (NPCA) is proposing to update the 2013 Niagara Peninsula Source Protection Plan and Assessment Report. We are seeking your input and comments on updating these documents. Proposed updates to these documents will consider future changes to municipal infrastructure, new provincial technical rules, and current Source Protection Plan policy effectiveness and implementation challenges. Additional considerations will include new information from environmental monitoring and other local considerations.

On June 21st in the afternoon (2-4pm) and evening (6-8pm) a workshop was held at our Ball’s Falls Centre for Conservation at 3292 Sixth Avenue, Vineland. At the workshop we (i) presented our preliminary analyses of issues and challenges facing the existing Plan, (ii) provided recommendations for areas of the Plan to be updated and (iii) received feedback and comments regarding the proposed updates.

If you were unable to attend we would be pleased to receive your comments directly by mail, fax or e‑mail before August 15, 2017 for incorporation into the workplan. The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change requires NPCA to prepare a workplan to update these documents for submission by November 30, 2017. We look forward to your participation in the stakeholder consultation process. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
