Risk Management

Risk Management Plans are one of the ways municipalities can protect their drinking water sources, through new powers given to municipalities under the Clean Water Act. Risk Management Plans are intended to be negotiated between a Risk Management Official (RMO) and a landowner engaged in a significant threat activity.

In the illustration below, Risk Management Plans are identified within the range of tools available under the Clean Water Act to protect municipal drinking water supplies. Risk Management Plans are considered a Part IV power, because they get their authority from Part IV of the Clean Water Act.
