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.
