Wastewater Practitioners Group

The Environmental Approvals Branch of the Ministry of the Environment (EAB) and the Water Environment Association of Ontario (WEAO) have formed a Wastewater Practitioner's Working Group (WPG) to create a forum for discussion on municipal, industrial and storm water management. Both groups will contribute to the information exchange, the technical discussions, training and finding opportunities for improvement of the Approvals process and its operational practices.

The WPG is not intended for discussion of environmental policy topics. The topics for discussion and details of location of the next meeting will be posted here after each meeting to encourage others interested to participate. We see the meetings to be dynamic in participation and scope, as others are invited to participate if interested

The next meeting will be held Wednesday September 6th, 2017 @ 1:30 – 4:00PM - 125 Resources Road, 2nd floor, Room N219, Etobicoke, ON
