Conservation Ontario’s submission to the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change on the “Proposed Technical Guidance for Bottled Water Permit Renewals” (EBR# 012-9151) and “Regulations Establishing a New Water Bottling Charge” (EBR# 012-9574). Overall, Conservation Ontario is supportive of the intent of both EBR postings. CO provided several specific comments to strengthen the proposed procedural and technical documents scientifically, and to ensure that only persons with relevant experience can conduct required technical studies. CO also provided comments on the proposed water charge, to ensure that the goals of that proposal are achieved including cost recovery and a science-based understanding of the water resource.
