Updates to the guide, entitled “Taking Care of Your Drinking Water: A Guide for Members of Municipal Councils,” include information added on the Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure Regulation, Ontario Regulation 588/17. 

Municipal officials can also learn more through standard of care training developed and delivered by the Walkerton Clean Water Centre.
