New! Drinking Water Resource Library

The Walkerton Clean Water Centre (WCWC) is pleased to announce a new online service, the Drinking Water Resource Library. The Drinking Water Resource Library was developed to provide easy access to trusted resources related to drinking water. The library consists of a catalog of documents and features multiple search functions to ease the research of information.

For over a year, WCWC has been developing the Drinking Water Resource Library and piloting its content with the support of clients and an advisory committee. This initiative is part of WCWC’s strategy to enhance the transfer of knowledge to owners, operators and operating authorities of Ontario’s drinking water systems. Feedback collected from the trial phase demonstrated overwhelming support to continue the development of this resource. 

The library is now available and can be accessed from wcwc.ca or at www.drinkingwaterresourcelibrary.ca. Or stop by booth 400 for a demonstration at Ontario’s Water Conference & Trade Show in Niagara Falls April 29–May 2, 2018. 

Background: The Walkerton Clean Water Centre is an agency of the Government of Ontario, established in 2004, to ensure clean and safe drinking water for the entire province. WCWC coordinates and provides education, training and information to drinking water system owners, operators and operating authorities, and the public, in order to safeguard Ontario’s drinking water. Through partnerships, WCWC also provides training for the 133 First Nations communities in Ontario. To date, high-quality training has been provided to more than 74,000 participants across Ontario.
