DRINKING WATER QUALITY MANAGEMENT STANDARD — MAKING THE TRANSITION
WCWC recently hosted the workshop, Drinking Water Quality Management Standard — Making the Transition, in Kingston, London and Thunder Bay, Ontario.
The workshop was geared toward Drinking Water Quality Management Standard (DWQMS) stakeholders: utility managers; drinking water operators; regulators; and municipal decision makers. Over the course of the two-day workshop, a total of 155 participants rotated through interactive breakout sessions facilitated by industry experts. Topics covered included transitional audits, evaluating mandatory hazards, corrective and preventative actions, infrastructure planning, emergency preparedness and best management practices. As well, the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks provided an update on the status of the Municipal Licensing Program and how municipalities are transitioning to DWQMS 2.0.
This was WCWC’s eighth year hosting this popular workshop to support its clients. Feedback from participants continues to be very positive. “This was a great workshop. Excellent job to the WCWC and trainers. Thanks!!” reported one participant.
