Municipal water is very important and is influenced by many factors, such as the quality of source water, which are subject to all levels of government.

Legislative changes have an effect on the quality and cost of water in Ontario. The OMWA provides a unified voice for Municipalities of Ontario working for good water rules.

Municipal potable water is an important and essential human need, which should provide a very stable career path. Changes in technologies and legislation will be a challenge as in all careers.

My hobbies include: water governance, music performance, travel, skiing, motorcycling.
