Specialty crop growers may be interested in upcoming Permit to Take Water (PTTW) workshops. A Permit to Take Water is required for anyone taking/pumping more than 50,000 litres per day for agricultural irrigation. There is no fee for an agricultural permit.
Do you have a Permit that is up for renewal?
Are you considering applying for a new Permit?
OMAFRA is conducting workshops to assist agricultural water takers with understanding the PTTW program and how to complete an application. A new application must be fully completed for a new or renewal permit.
The workshop is a half day session consisting of a presentation on the PTTW program, review of an agricultural irrigation permit application and question and answer session. There is no fee for the workshop.
Date: November 23 & December 18, 2012
Time: 9am-12pm or 1pm-3pm
