The Closer to Home - Smaller Centres Water and Wastewater Operator Renewal Initiative was a collaborative project for strengthening and renewing capacity and expertise for safe drinking water and responsibly managed wastewater systems across Alberta's smaller rural centres.
Print and AV materials were developed to support municipal leaders and water and wastewater utility managers. Funding was provided primarily through Rural Alberta's Development Fund.
