    Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is proposing amendments to the Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations (WSER). You are receiving this email from because we understand that your wastewater system is subject to the WSER. As such, we are seeking your input on the proposed amendments.

    We have published the proposed Regulations Amending the Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations (proposed amendments) in the Canada Gazette I. We are initiating a 60-day public consultation period. We invite you to review the proposed amendments and share any feedback and perspectives by July 26, 2023.

    Proposed Amendments

    The proposed amendments would allow new applications for extensions to upgrade wastewater systems (transitional authorizations). They would also expand temporary bypass authorizations for maintenance work at the treatment plant to include releases from the sewer system and would set conditions based on risk to the environment. ECCC is also proposing to amend administrative provisions to provide greater clarity and resolve implementation issues.

    We have created factsheets that explain through the proposed changes to the Regulations, which are available on our webpage.

    Feedback and Information Sessions

    To provide your comments on the proposed amended regulations, please use the commenting boxes provided on the Canada Gazette webpage and if you have comments on a specific section, please note it. You can comment on behalf of an organization, individually, or anonymously, and your comments will be publicly available to increase transparency and accountability. For more information on how to comment, please visit our site Comment on proposed regulations.

    We will be hosting public information sessions to discuss the proposed amendments, answer questions and receive feedback. To register for a virtual information session, please visit our webpage using the following link: Consultations on wastewater -

    New AWWA guide helps water utilities navigate upcoming lead requirements



    A new communications guide to help water utilities navigate the latest regulations concerning lead in drinking water -- in particular the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) revised Lead and Copper Rule (LCRR) -- has been developed by top water sector professionals and is now available on AWWA's website. Many of the communication tools  and information will be highly applicable to Canadian Utilities as well. 

    The Lead Communications Guide and Toolkit draws on insights and examples from utilities throughout the United States and Canada. It was developed by a project committee of AWWA members from the Public Affairs and Water Utility councils with contractor HDR Engineering. An overview of the guide is being presented today, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. MST, during an AWWA webinar, Let's Talk Lead: New LCRR Communications Tools to Strengthen Public Trust.

    "Consumers need to hear from us and hear the story of drinking water and what we do to minimize the risk of lead getting into drinking water," she added. "Regardless of whether your utility has a dedicated communications department, we all have the responsibility to engage with our communities proactively and on an ongoing basis. The Lead Communications Guide provides strategies and examples of how utilities can build positive and transparent relationships with their communities and become a trustworthy source of information."

    Included in the guide are sections covering:

    • Best practices for communications, including examples and guidance
    • Tips for communicating about water quality with the public and community members    
    • Regulatory requirements and what they mean for a utility's communication and outreach efforts    
    • Checklists for meeting key LCRR communication and outreach requirements and assessing a utility's readiness for implementation
