Every year, the Ontario Sewer and Watermain Construction Association (OSWCA) hosts an annual conference offering its members an opportunity to network with other industry representatives and discuss key industry issues.
Since Toronto's summer flood in 2013, Waterkeeper dedicated a lot of effort into keeping the city's swimmers, paddlers, boaters, surfers, and beachgoers informed on their recreational water quality. In doing so, Waterkeeper has become a voice for the lake's rec water users and sewage-related issues affecting Lake Ontario. Waterkeeper was thrilled to be asked to speak at this year's conference. On Monday, February 1 at 11am, Waterkeeper's Vice-President Krystyn Tully proudly presents at OSWCA's 45th Annual Conference.
The OSWCA have represented sewer and watermain construction contractors across the province for more than 35 years, and currently serves over 750 member companies including contractors, manufacturers, distributors and consulting engineers. Their concerns include water system management, the environment, safety, contract terms, engineering, and many other issues relevant to the sewer and watermain construction industry. Collectively, the OSWCA handles $1 billion a year in capital projects to ensure clean safe drinking water and environmentally responsible wastewater treatment and disposal.
