Join Credit Valley Conservation for an engaging workshop with leaders in the field of risk management on February 13, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The workshop, entitled, Water: A Risky Business, will be held at the London Convention Centre, 300 York St, London, Ontario, N6B 1P8. Participants will be guided through current and emerging options for adopting a more holistic approach to water management, exploring the connections between stormwater, wastewater and drinking water infrastructure.
Almost half of Canadians think their municipal infrastructure is in good condition. The truth is, an estimated $170 billion is required to replace or repair aging infrastructure and water systems across Canada (Federation of Canadian Municipalities).
Traditional approaches to managing water cannot meet the challenges of growth, aging infrastructure and climate change. Join leaders from across North America and learn about tools to help your small, medium or large municipality manage risk and optimize your investment in water infrastructure.

The workshop is hosted by the Canadian Water Network, Credit Valley Conservation, University of Guelph, McMaster University, Dalhousie University, University of Toronto and Zizzo Allan Law. It coincides with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Sustainable Communities Conference, which also takes place at the London Convention Centre, from February 10-12, 2015.
