The Distribution Committee assembles and disseminates information on the design, engineering, construction, operation, and maintenance of water distribution systems.
In 2017, the Distribution Committee published the Frozen Water Services Information Document, which includes a detailed discussion of best practices and other information related to the management of frozen water services, based on surveys and interviews conducted with municipalities across Ontario.
Reviews applicable provincial and federal regulations and makes formal comments in liaison with other OWWA committees
The Distribution Committee maintains an active membership from core water distribution areas, particularly operations and maintenance. The Committee includes representatives from large and small water utilities, as well as members from operating authorities, consulting firms, equipment suppliers, regulatory agencies, and academic institutions.
The size of our committee varies from eight to a maximum of fifteen members. Subcommittees are formed on an as-needed basis. New members are welcomed as vacancies permit.
The Distribution Committee meets a minimum of five times per year, usually on the second Thursday of every second month, beginning in January, and excluding July and August.
Each fall the Distribution Committee organizes a one-day workshop that is of special interest to operators, supervisors, managers, consultants, and decision makers involved in the operational challenges stemming from new legislation and the introduction of new technologies.
