Peel's New Water Bylaw


What do the changes mean for you?

Protecting our drinking water is one of many ways we support healthy communities.

Peel's drinking water is regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act, 2002 and governed by the Water Bylaw, first approved by Regional Council in 1973. Regional Council recently approved some updates to the Water Bylaw. It became effective April 1, 2017.

Report suspected water theft by calling the Region at 905-791-7800. All temporary connections to the Region of Peel's drinking water system must be authorized. Suspicious connections to fire hydrants by unauthorised water hauling trucks should be reported to prevent damage to the water infrastructure and keep our water supply safe and free of contamination.

Other ways the new Water Bylaw will help to prevent, control, and minimize potential threats to the water system that could cause water quality issues include:

If you have any questions about Peel's water quality please contact the Region's Water Quality and Compliance staff at 905-791-7800, ext. 4685, or email
