Risk Management Office

The Risk Management Office is established to assist in the enforcement of the Clean Water Act. The office includes a local Risk Management Official (RMO) who will be assisted by local Risk Management Inspectors (RMI).

The RMO and RMIs will establish guidance documents for risk assessments, prepare risk management plans (RMP) for prescribed activities, develop templates and forms for RMPs, develop information packages or sessions for property owners, negotiate and establish RMPs with property owners, approve RMPs, monitor implementation and performance of the RMPs, and report to the Source Protection Authority.

The RMO and RMIs work closely with property owners, municipal staff, local Conservation Authorities and agencies such as the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC), Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH).
