2017 Utility Management Forum



2017 Utility Management Forum

The beautiful City of Toronto will play host to the 2017 WEAO Utility Management Forum (UMF),  on Tuesday October 24, 2017 at Toronto Botanical Gardens.

The Water Environment Association of Ontario is once again providing a comprehensive forum to meet the needs of the utility managers and other leaders in the Province. This one day session will allow leaders to take a moment to interact in an open and information-filled forum, which will address the problems they face daily, and discuss solutions and initiatives practiced by others in dealing with them.

This year’s Forum will build on the successes of the last two years, provide more networking opportunities with peers, and include three relevant keynote addresses

The Forum will highlight published reports on Staffing done by The New York Water Environment Association (NYWEA), and the British Columbia Water and Wastewater Association (BCWWA). Other topics on projects within Ontario will be discussed also.

The six breakout sessions include:  

  •  Storm Water Management

  •  Climate Change

  •  Smart Cities

  •  Asset Management

  •  Operations – Staffing Water Facilities into the Future

  •  Source Water/Great Lakes.
