Construction is underway on the new Walkerton Clean Water Centre. The new, energy efficient building will increase the centre’s capacity to conduct training, seminars, information sessions and research. The centre is dedicated to providing hands-on training and learning opportunities for owners and operators of drinking water systems with a focus on those in remote areas. So far it has trained over 12,000 drinking water professionals.
A key resource in the continued implementation of the Walkerton Inquiry recommendations, the new building, located in Walkerton’s East Ridge Business Park, should be ready in fall 2009.
