The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC) is pleased to release its 2021–22 annual report, available online at wcwc.ca/en/about/governance-documents/.

The annual report highlights WCWC’s work during the past year to strengthen its programs providing education, training, information and advice to water professionals. WCWC successfully delivered training through classroom, correspondence and virtual sessions to 6,727 participants and supported the improvement of water in First Nations communities through the delivery of Entry-Level Course for Drinking Water Operators for First Nations, Managing Drinking Water Systems in First Nations Communities and specialized courses. WCWC’s Technology Demonstration Facility served as a platform for pilot testing. Eight pilot projects were completed and seven more were underway at the end of the fiscal year to provide site-specific information on source water quality, treatment performance and alternative treatment technologies. WCWC also produced 13 publications to enhance knowledge transfer and share information with the water professionals who safeguard water resources.

CEO Brian Bates is excited for what the future holds for WCWC,

“I’m proud of the work the Centre has done to ensure safe, reliable drinking water in Ontario. However, there is more work to do.  The Centre continues to expand its offerings and will be launching several new courses this coming year, both virtual and face-to-face. To this end, we are currently conducting voice of customer research to uncover any unmet training needs. We are also opening our online specialty courses to operators outside the province, which will help fuel further growth at the Centre.”
