I want to pump water from the lake. Do I need a permit?
Water taking is regulated by the Ministry of the Environment (MOE). Permit requirements depend on the volume of water to be taken. Please contact the Ministry of Environment Environmental Officer at 613.549-4000 ext. 2627 or visit MOE Permits to Take Water webpage.
Installation of a pump or intake unit may be considered a shoreline alteration which would require written approval from MVCA. Please contact the MVCA Environmental Planner at (613) 253.0006 to discuss your proposal.
