In partnership with the Aboriginal Water and Wastewater Association of Ontario (AWWAO), the Walkerton Clean Water Centre will offer two training sessions, titled “Managing Drinking Water Systems in First Nations Communities” and “New Watermain Commissioning.”

The training will be made available to all First Nations Chiefs, Councillors, managers and supervisors who have operational responsibility for water systems, and drinking water operators.

The theme of this year’s symposium is “Protecting Water During Uncertain Times”, directly dealing with the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
