It is now recognized that climate change will have significant impacts and that the extent of the impacts will vary geographically. Preparing for change is crucial to ensure residents and businesses in Ontario continue to receive an adequate and uninterrupted supply of high quality drinking water.
Our membership includes members from both OWWA and WEAO (Water Environment Association of Ontario) whose members focus on the wastewater/storm water components affected by climate change. We also work closely with the Ontario Coalition for Sustainable Infrastructure (OCSI) to ensure issues related to infrastructure are adequately addressed in the Committee’s work.
Meetings consist of in person meetings in the OWWA Boardroom in Mississauga and/or teleconferences.
This is a new award presented by the OWWA/WEAO Climate Change Committee to recognize innovation in building climate-resilient water infrastructure with low or net-zero emissions.
