The Ontario Drinking Water Stewardship Program (ODWSP) Early Response Program funding ended in December 2012. Through the program, funding assistance was provided to 46 projects that were located within vulnerable zones near municipal drinking water supplies in the Severn Sound Source Protection Area.
More than $100,000 in grant money was spent on projects that included: water well upgrades, proper plugging and sealing of unused wells, septic system upgrades or replacements, and reduction of chemicals.
