Environmental Compliance Applications

By law, a business must have an environmental approval or registration from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change if it:

  • releases pollutants into the air, land or water
  • stores, transports or disposes of waste

An environmental approval or registration sets out rules of operation for these activities that are intended to protect the natural environment and are legally enforceable.

Section 4.5 of the ECA application deals with Source Protection / Drinking Water Threats.

For assistance with these questions, please contact the Risk Management Office for the Source Protection Area where the application is being made.
