Risk Management Officials

Risk Management Officials or RMOs, are specially trained and qualified to evaluate risks to municipal drinking water sources. They work with the property owner to develop a Risk Management Plan. You might also meet a Risk Management Inspector, or RMI, who enforces Risk Management Plans similar to the way a building inspector enforces the Ontario Building Code. Risk Management Officials and inspectors carry provincially issued identification that you can ask to see at any time.
