Does the proposed regulation only apply to activities by developers? Are there any plans to incorporate the current exemptions for sewer replacements, under O.Reg. 40/15 or O.Reg. 525/98 into the proposed municipal ECA? If not, there does not appear to be any benefit to the Municipality to seek an ECA for their sanitary sewer system, as the majority of work performed by or for the municipality is currently exempt from the approval process - at least in the case of our small municipality.

If the intention is to create a process, similar to the Municipal Drinking Water Licence and Drinking Water Works Permit, for all municipal collection systems and associated activities (maintenance, rehabilitation, replacement etc), will there be conditions and requirements for not only construction but also for these activities in the ECA?
