Fall 2015 Regional Meetings

Our 2015 regional meetings were packed with information on a variety of topics, including upcoming regulatory changes under the new Water Sustainability Act, workplace safety, well placement near septic fields, the new ITA certification program for well drillers and well pump installers, groundwater quality assessment and treatment objectives for drinking water, and updates from regional health authorities.  Bruce Ingimundson, our former executive director, dropped in for a brief photo opportunity at the Fraser Valley meeting.
