Policy Summary
Powassan Wellhead Protection Area

Powassan's Wellhead Protection Area (WHPA) covers mostly open space and a segment of Highway 11. Most activities identified as significant threats are already incompatible with current zoning by-laws, and are thus largely prohibited from use.

The policies below apply to the Powassan's WHPA A, B, and/or C.
