    Dear Colleagues,­­

    I am pleased to invite you to a symposium hosted by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) to be held January 18 – 20, 2022 via three separate virtual sessions to highlight project activities and scientific efforts undertaken through the Lake Winnipeg Basin Program.

    Symposium Purpose:

    • Share research findings from ECCC-led research related to nutrients and water quality in Lake Winnipeg and its basin,
    • Feature program accomplishments including highlights of projects undertaken by funding recipients to reduce nutrient loading to the lake, enhance collaboration throughout the basin and engage Indigenous peoples on water quality issues related to Lake Winnipeg,
    • Gather feedback on research presented and on research gaps, as well as future program priorities for the Lake Winnipeg Basin Program.

    Registration: As this symposium is by invitation, we ask that you take a moment to register for EACH day of the symposium that you plan to attend. Note: this requires three short, but separate registration steps to ensure you receive the correct meeting links for each day of the symposium you wish to attend:

    • Day 1 - Scientific Advancements related to Nutrients and Climate Change
      (Tuesday, January 18: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm CST)
    • Day 2 - Advancing the Knowledge of In-Lake and Watershed Science 
      (Wednesday, January 19: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm CST)
    • Day 3 – Actions Throughout the Basin
      (Thursday, January 20: 10:00am – 3:00 pm CST)

    Hello,

    ECCC is proposing amendments to the Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations (WSER). We understand that your organization plays a role within the wastewater sector and as such, we are seeking your input on the regulatory proposal to amend transitional and temporary authorizations.

    We are planning to initiate formal consultations with Indigenous peoples, interested parties and the general public. We have published a Discussion document outlining the regulatory proposal online for a 90-day public comment period. We invite you to review this document and share any feedback and perspectives by March 5, 2022.

    We will also be hosting virtual consultation sessions to discuss the proposed amendments, answer questions and receive feedback. Suggestions and ideas collected during the consultation phase will inform the proposed regulations.

    To review the Discussion document, provide feedback, and register for a virtual consultation session, please visit our webpage using the following link: Consultations on wastewater - Canada.ca.

    Tackling Plastics in Freshwater
    Wednesday, November 17 | 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

    While there has been a significant amount of focus on the plastic that ends up in our oceans, we also need to consider the amount of plastic pollution that’s entering our freshwater. This session will explore the current challenges and potential opportunities associated with managing plastic pollution in Canada’s freshwater.

    During the discussion, we will consider how plastics are currently regulated in Canada, what opportunities there are for improvement, the implications for municipalities, and what technology companies can do to support municipalities.

    Up Next: Advancing Municipal Co-digestion

    Wednesday, October 20, 2021 11AM - 12PM ET

    Many stakeholders recognize that the amount of greenhouse gas emissions entering the atmosphere need to be limited, if not reduced, given the negative implications of global warming.

    Since wastewater treatment plants generate a significant amount of GHG emissions, there’s an opportunity for municipalities to help reduce the overall emissions.

    This session will examine the benefits of municipal co-digestion, explore regulatory requirements and financing options for projects, and provide examples of municipalities that are currently undertaking projects.

    “Transitions are a part of life, allowing for perpetual renewal.”
    – David Simon (HBO's The Wire)


    The return of WCW21

    WCW21 is a chance to renew and reconnect.
    Like many of you or the organizations you work for, the unprecedented challenges we've faced over the last 16 months have forced us to grow, pivot and address new ways to meet challenges and meet our mission. Our reimagined virtual conference is a way to address the upcoming unknowns that we may encounter in September and focus on the things that we can control. 

    A different kind of conference schedule.
    We know we are competing with your time at work, home and against general online fatigue. Our idea was to build a schedule that had something for everyone without the pressure of a heavily packed 3-day schedule. The conference is laid out over a month so you can identify the events that you want to attend and schedule them into your calendar for that day. 

    Overview
    • The technical sessions happen from 1-4:30 PM (Mountain Time) every Thursday afternoon in September. With your registration, you are able to view the sessions again or catch up on ones you missed for a 3-month period post-conference.
    • The other events such as the AMA (Ask Me Anything), Social Events, Workshops and Keynote are live and will not be repeated. We ask that you carefully review the schedule and block off to attend the events that interest you. 
    • You can collect CEUs for attendance, please ensure that you click that option when you register. Every Thursday afternoon is worth 0.3 CEUs and you must attend the entire afternoon to receive those CEUs. If you attend every Thursday afternoon, you could earn 1.5 CEUs in total. 
    Registration
    Rates go up on August 1 register now to avoid paying a higher fee. 
    • Member $350 + tax
    • Non-member $425+tax
    *If you have current membership with AWWOA, MWWA, NTWWA, SWWA, WEF or AWWA, you are eligible for member rates. 

    The full conference schedule and technical session information are available online
