Have you completed a Drinking Water Safety Plan (DWSP)? Would your municipality be interested in hosting a free session that will outline how to complete the DSWP templates? The Closer to Home (C2H) Initiative is currently inviting municipalities to express an interest in working with other communities by hosting a session which will guide participants in completing an initial Drinking Water Safety Plan (DWSP).

DWSPs incorporate a risk-management and planning approach to ensuring a community’s water is safe and remains safe to drink. As water supplies are often shared, C2H Initiative has established a unique opportunity for you to work with other communities around you to complete these DWSPs. This also provides an opportunity to identify common gaps and build cooperation with a common goal of sustaining safe drinking water as well as developing local supports to maintain the DWSPs on an ongoing, annual basis as required by the Government of Alberta.

The sessions will be a Continuing Education Unit accredited education workshop which will provide an introduction on to how to complete the DWSP templates. Efforts will be made to deliver these sessions in a manner that meets local needs and free technical support will be available for session participants after to help finalize their initial DWSPs.

C2H are currently looking for municipalities willing to host these workshops. For detailed information on these session opportunities, click here and contact Jeff Hanger at c2hassociate@awwoa.ca to express an interest in hosting.

The Closer to Home (C2H) Initiative is a project hosted by the Alberta Water and Wastewater Operators Association and funded, in part, by the Rural Alberta Development Fund (RADF). The AAMDC is a partner in the C2H project.
