This map tool shows the protected drinking water areas around municipal sources of drinking water in the Mississippi-Rideau Region. The different colours on the map indicate where different protection policies are in place depending on how quickly and easily contaminants released at that location could reach a river or aquifer that supplies a town’s drinking water.

With this map tool you can:

  • See the protected area around a community’s drinking water source (zoom by using the + or – buttons or mouse scroll wheel)
  • See if a town or village has a protected drinking water area (type a place name into the box with the magnifying glass)
  • Find your property to see if it is within a protected drinking water area (zoom by using the + or – buttons or mouse scroll wheel or pan around by dragging your mouse)
  • Find out what the protected area means (click on any of the coloured areas)
  • Return to the initial extent view and start a new search (click the home button)
