Focus on OPTIONS AND OPERATIONS OF WATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS IN SMALL NORTHERN COMMUNITIES -

Presentation by Ken Johnson, M.A.Sc., MCIP, P.Eng. 

Significant resources have been applied to water supply in small northern communities over the past 20 years in order to provide all communities with a safe and reliable source of drinking water.   New demands for water supply improvements are emerging as a result of the water quality catastrophes of Walkerton and other communities, as a result of more stringent water treatment regulations, and as a result  of decades old systems approaching the end of their design life.  Unfortunately the financial resources cannot keep up with the demands, and the Territorial Governments must very carefully review the options and operations of small water systems in order to provide the most appropriate technology for each community.
