Schedule of Events

With rising COVID-19 case numbers in Alberta, the AWWOA Executive Board has made the decision to move the 2021 Water Week Conference to a virtual event. As members of the water/wastewater community, the work you do everyday is imperative to the health and safety of your municipalities. In an effort to keep you and your communities safe, we do not feel it is responsible to host a large in-person gathering at this time.

After a year and a half of uncertainty, we recognize that earning CEUs is important and critical to maintaining your certification. That is why we have chosen to run the Water Week Technical Sessions online from November 1-3, 2021 where you can earn up to 1.5 CEUs.

The online event will also include a complimentary half-day special presentation:
AWWOA Incident Safety Awareness Workshop*

*Note: this workshop was previously presented at our 2021 Annual Operators Virtual Seminar.  Additional CEUs will NOT be available if you have already attended.

Registration is OPEN
