Source Protection Implementation Funding

In recognition that there could be a financial impact to landowners affected by the source protection initiatives, a number of programs have been developed by Halton Region and the Ministry of the Environment to take action in reducing threats to local municipal drinking water sources:

Halton’s Residential Well Decommissioning Grant

Halton Region offers a grant to residents planning to decommission unused well(s), up to 50% of the total cost to a maximum of $1,000.00 per well.  If you are interested or want to find more information, please dial 311 or visit the Residential Well Decommissioning Grant page.

The Halton-Hamilton Watershed Stewardship Program

The goal of this program is the conservation of natural areas or creeks on private properties. This program provides support through practical advice and financial assistance. Landowners have been involved in various rehabilitation projects including establishing riparian buffers, enhancing wetland and upland habitat, fencing cattle from creeks, constructing manure storage facilities and controlling erosion.
