The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC) is pleased to release its 2022–23 annual report, available online at wcwc.ca/en/about/governance-documents/.

2022–23 was another successful year for WCWC. WCWC developed and delivered a variety of mandatory and specialized courses to almost 8,000 participants, including in-class, correspondence and virtual options. Self-directed e-learning was also introduced to allow participants from Ontario and beyond to study at their own pace while improving the affordability and accessibility of training.

WCWC also continued to support First Nation communities in their efforts to improve drinking water through the courses Entry-Level Course for Drinking Water Operators for First Nations and Managing Drinking Water Systems in First Nations Communities. Twenty specialized course sessions were also delivered to provide the specific information and skills needed to help optimize drinking water systems in First Nations communities.

WCWC’s Technology Demonstration Facility served as a platform for pilot testing services. Nine pilot projects were completed and 10 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. Technical tours were provided to 363 course participants, postsecondary and high school students to share information about the equipment and operational requirements necessary to ensure that drinking water is safe. WCWC also produced 12 publications and 13 videos during the 2022–23 fiscal year to help enhance knowledge transfer on important drinking water treatment topics.
