Small System Fundamentals Course Launched

WCWC is pleased to release a new course designed for owners and operators of small non-municipal drinking water systems as defined under Ontario Regulation 170/03.

The course, Small System Fundamentals, includes a review of the characteristics of source waters, primary and secondary disinfection and challenges associated with treatment equipment commonly used in small drinking water systems. Participants will learn how to conduct monitoring and operational checks and the process for responding to Adverse Water Quality Incidents (AWQIs). Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities related to equipment maintenance, operational checks and AWQI follow-ups.

Small System Fundamentals replaces the course, Practical Training for Small Drinking Water System Owners and Operators, and meets the requirements for maintaining the Trained Person
designation and Continuing Education Units for Limited System Operators. Other WCWC courses that can be used to maintain the Trained Person designation include: Operation of Small Drinking Water Systems; Best Practices for Small Systems; and Small Systems Hands-on Workshop.
