Exiting One Crisis and Mitigating Another Potential Crisis

Friday, May 1, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.



Who Should attend?

This free webinar is intended to raise the awareness of municipalities/utilities who have large commercial buildings and industries within their municipal boundaries. As large buildings have been shut down or used less frequently, building water quality degradation becomes a silent but serious issue.

After you register, you will receive a registration confirmation email within 12 hours with instructions on how to join the webinar.


As our government leaders try to predict when business as usual will begin in Ontario, we as water and wastewater professionals need to be ready for when our citizens go back to work and school. We need to be prepared, we need to think about all that we must do prior to reopening business and we must educate our water customers on what they also must do. Resuming business as usual should not be as simple as turning on the lights and turning up the heat. We need to educate ourselves and our customers about potential private side safety issues relating to water quality in various buildings that have been left dormant during the COVID-19 emergency.
The Ontario Municipal Water Association (OMWA) has partnered with Brian Jobb, a Training & Consulting Professional to present this very important free webinar. Brian’s presentation is meant as a starting point to bring awareness of the issue of water quality degradation in building plumbing when it is not used, or water use is significantly reduced. The presentation will be approximately one hour with opportunities to ask your questions. It is intended as a general roadmap for how to flush contaminants from the building and get the plumbing system water quality back to pre-stagnation conditions. Each building is different, and flushing will need to be tailored accordingly.
