Outreach Activities

President of SOWMA, Greg Plett, provided a presentation on the importance of a trained and certified workforce to the Provincial Health Inspection Managers (PHIM) at their fall meeting in Regina in October. Discussion with the managers in attendance indicated that there is strong support among provincial inspectors for mandatory training and certification.

In November, Greg provided a presentation on new technologies at the Saskatchewan chapter of the Canadian Institute of Public Health Inspectors (CIPHI) conference in Saskatoon. These outreach efforts to the permitting and inspection sector support the industry through shared information on areas of concern regarding the onsite wastewater industry.

In March 2013, SOWMA will represent the onsite wastewater industry by participating in the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) Convention and Trade Show in Saskatoon.
