CWWA Window on Ottawa - June 8-9, 2016

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The Window on Ottawa is CWWA’s core event featuring presentations from federal departments and national organizations on new initiatives and regulatory developments on a national level.  This is your chance to hear what’s coming down the pipe from the federal government. 
The Window format and intimate delegation also allows an opportunity for our delegates to interact with the senior government officials developing policies and programs that will impact operations. We’re looking at ways to improve the opportunities and access to our speakers, making the Window an even more important opportunity to influence federal decision making.
The draft program will be available in the New Year, but topics we’re pursing include:
  • Infrastructure funding – what programs are available, how can we access them
  • Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations – the status of implementation and challenges for our members
  • Changes to the Environmental Assessment process
  • Water Sector Modelling – focusing on sectorial interdependencies
  • Climate Change Adaptation
  • Implementation of the Regional Assessment Program - related to water utility security
  • Updates on the Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality
  • Other emerging federal programs and initiatives
Our 2015 Utility Excellence Awards will be awarded during the Window on Ottawa, and the application process will be available in early 2016.
The Window also features our Annual Dinner, a night of great food and socializing with our delegates.
