Become a Partner
The mandate of the ORMGP partnership is to provide a multi-agency, collaborative approach to collecting, analyzing and disseminating water resource data as a basis for effective stewardship of water resources. We continue to update the regional geological and hydrogeological context for ongoing groundwater studies and management initiatives within the partnership area.

Data Sharing and Partnership Agreement
Since it's establishment in 2001, the ORMGP has continually collected and managed data for the City of Toronto, the regional Municipalities of York, Peel, and Durham, and nine local conservation authorities. In 2018 the program broadened it's reach by offering access to the Program's data and analysis tools to the consulting community.
In order to respect privacy concerns with respect to the sensitive nature of some of the data/information held in the program, the ORMGP website has been divided into a "Public" side, accessible to everyone free of charge, and a "Partner" side accessible to technical staff from the ORMGP agencies. A comparative summary of the two can be found below.
