Walkerton Clean Water Centre Hosting Provincial Workshop: Drinking Water Quality Management Standard — Making The Transition
The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC) is pleased to be hosting a workshop, Drinking Water Quality Management Standard — Making the Transition, in three locations across the province.
This workshop will be geared toward Drinking Water Quality Management Standard (DWQMS) representatives, utility managers, drinking water operators, regulators and municipal decision makers. Participants will rotate through highly interactive breakout sessions facilitated by industry experts to discuss topics such as 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 (MECP) will provide an update on the status of the Municipal Licensing Program and how municipalities are transitioning to DWQMS 2.0.
This will be WCWC’s eighth year hosting this provincial workshop in support of its clients. Feedback from past participants has been excellent. One 2018 participant noted, “Once again the Walkerton Clean Water Centre has done an excellent job with this training opportunity. Having the MECP representatives available for training sessions, and question periods is a great asset for attendees. I found the breakout sessions very informative and beneficial.”
