Canada OKs Wastewater Effluent Strategy

The Council of Ministers endorsed the Canada-wide Strategy for the Management of Municipal Wastewater Effluent on Feb. 17, according to a press release.

The strategy sets out a harmonized framework to manage discharges from more than 3,500 wastewater facilities in Canada, many of which are in need of repair and upgrading. It provides an agreed-upon path forward for achieving regulatory clarity for owners of municipal wastewater facilities. Performance standards will increase protection for human health and the environment on a national basis. Bilateral agreements between the federal government and provinces and territories will ensure one-window regulatory delivery of the strategy.
