Whether for industry or society, science-based decision-making requires reliable data and frameworks for their interpretation and risk management, even when faced with significant uncertainty. We are committed to working with our partners to develop those tools.
Some of our projects include:
Development of Ontario’s new Guidance Document to Determine Minimum Treatment for Municipal Residential Drinking Water Systems Using Subsurface Raw Water Supplies
Advancing modeling approaches for quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA)
Standardization and guidance for reporting low and non-detect microbial count data
Application of geophysical tools for assessing pathogen risk in subsurface water supplies
Investigation of forest management as a source water protection technology
Development of a framework for assessing drinking water treatment vulnerability to wildfire-associated changes in source water quality
