Waster Water Management
The federal government has transferred responsibility for wastewater treatment to the provinces and territories in the same way that it has delegated responsibility for drinking water. The Fisheries Act, which restricts the release of dangerous substances into seas where fish reside, is one of two federal acts that may apply to wastewater. The Environmental Protection Act regulates the release of harmful substances into the environment and gives the federal government the authority to create restrictions for their usage. Water treatment standards and criteria are regulated by most provincial and territorial governments.
