Walkerton Clean Water Centre: Announcement

WALKERTON, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 12, 2006) - The Walkerton Clean Water Centre is in the process of planning an interim state-of-the-art technology demonstration site which will include, but not be limited to, conventional and advanced water treatment systems; monitoring and control instruments; a distribution system; and numerous kinds of operating devices (e.g., valves and pumps).

The Centre intends to have the technology demonstration site include a pilot scale system to be used for hands-on training, technology demonstration and research.

The Centre is inviting all drinking water equipment manufacturers and suppliers to participate in the process of building this state-of-the-art site by donating equipment and instruments that would be representative of the advanced treatment technologies currently being used in the drinking water industry.

The Centre plans to have the site available to operators, operating authorities of water treatment systems, engineers, consultants, educators and students, to be used as part of providing training and education for the drinking water industry. The equipment would be used to provide information and education regarding advanced water treatment technologies, to help professionals in the water industry improve their knowledge.

This is an opportunity for equipment manufacturers and suppliers to introduce their technologies to drinking water professionals, which may help them to implement new and advanced water treatment processes in their water systems.

Together the Walkerton Clean Water Centre and its supporters continue to work to keep Ontario's drinking water safe.
