FREE INFILTRATOR WEBINAR: Fact vs. Fiction and the Top Ten Septic Myths @ Online
Aug 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Join us for a FREE live webinar hosted by Infiltrator Water Technologies featuring members of our team. Please note all webinar times are Eastern Standard time.

Abstract
Fact vs Fiction and The Top Ten Septic Myths. We have all heard them. Is Biomat bad? Does a distribution box or header manifold provide equal distribution? Are additives needed to start a septic tank? Well let’s take a look. Here we will explore common industry myths and dispel them through science. Please join us for a discussion dispelling common myths.

FREE INFILTRATOR WEBINAR: Streamlining Commercial Wastewater Treatment using Innovative Solutions with an Integrated Systems Approach @ Online
Aug 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Join us for a FREE live webinar hosted by Infiltrator Water Technologies featuring members of our team. Please note all webinar times are Eastern Standard time.

Abstract
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  We will explore why all commercial stakeholders should invest in good wastewater characterization on a “pounds per day” loading basis prior to designing/implementing a treatment solution.  Subsequently, we will show how this loading analysis along with a consultative approach has led to the development of innovative solutions for commercial wastewater treatment through integrated systems engineering.

FREE INFILTRATOR WEBINAR: Advanced Tank Design and Materials Expand Onsite Applications @ Online
Aug 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Join us for a FREE live webinar hosted by Infiltrator Water Technologies featuring members of our team. Please note all webinar times are Eastern Standard time.

Abstract

Tanks as simple storage vessel, have always been a fundamental part of the water and wastewater systems that benefit people and communities daily. Today, tanks are available for a wide range of uses and are constructed using a variety of materials that offer specific benefits for each application.

In decentralized wastewater treatment system applications, the need for compact systems for small lots and for systems in environmentally sensitive areas, including advanced treatment, is serving as a catalyst for tank innovation. The evolution and diversity of tank design and materials provide options that are generating new applications in the wastewater treatment system design arena. Communities and homeowners are increasingly concerned with improving the quality of effluent discharged back into the environment and tank technology is helping to make that achievable.

New tank designs are durable, allow for easy transportability to remote and challenging sites, and can house a variety of advanced systems that are increasingly popular where limited site size, remote or challenging site location or topography, unfavorable soil conditions, or proximity to a watershed or body of water eliminate the traditional septic system option.

In all systems utilizing tanks, proper installation is critical for maintaining structural integrity and watertightness. Inflow and infiltration in any tank compromises treatment and can ultimately result in failure.

Water Canada’s Window on Drinking Water @ online
Aug 26 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Health Canada senior staff will provide informative updates on aspects of the Canada Drinking Water Guidelines that are currently under review or soon to be reviewed. This will provide tremendous insight into the changes that could be coming our way and how one can make comments early.

Following the keynote presentation, the utility leaders panel will discuss where is that line between municipal responsibilities and those of the property owner? What does the law say versus a moral or practical obligation? The panel will consider these questions as they relate to issues such as lead, legionella, and the re-opening of buildings post COVID-19.

Speakers include:

  • Steve Craik—Director of Quality Assurance and Environment at EPCOR, and Chair of the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association’s (CWWA) Drinking Water Committee—Moderator

Septic Awareness Week 2020
Sep 14 – Sep 18 all-day

Join your industry association in Septic Awareness Week.

The Western Canada Onsite Wastewater Management Association and is affiliates will be promoting septic awareness during the week of September 14 to 18. The purpose of this initiative is to promote proper operation and maintenance of onsite wastewater systems.

Notices will be put up on our websites and in local newspapers about the importance of maintaining septic systems along with tips for operation. In some regions of Western Canada, delivery of our Septic Sense program will take place during that week.

Join us in asking your customers, regulatory authorities and municipal representatives – Do you have Septic Sense?

Contact the association office for materials to hand out to your customers!

Window on Infrastructure @ online
Sep 16 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

We will hear from the Canada Infrastructure Bank on its developing role in the national infrastructure landscape, and the opportunities available to the water sector. The Federation of Canadian Municipalities will provide an update on the funding and programming support it is offering to municipalities, as well as its reaction to federal infrastructure investments for municipal water infrastructure.

Following the presentations, the utility leaders panel will discuss the reality in the water sector and have a conversation about how funding opportunities are being accessed. Are they meeting the federal goals?  Are they meeting municipal needs? Is there more needed, especially post-COVID-19?

Speakers include:

  • Carl Bodimeade—Senior Vice President of Infrastructure at Hatch, and Chair of the Canadian Water and Wastewater Association’s (CWWA) Utility Leadership Committee—Moderator
