I have reviewed the proposed changes and like that they provide more flexibility for drinking water and wastewater system owners during a pandemic or similar sustained emergency event.
Here are my comments for consideration.
Under the section 4: Allow owners and operating authorities to temporarily employ certain knowledgeable, experienced, but non-certified personnel to operate a drinking water subsystem to help ensure its continuity of operations in emergency situations.
Licensed Engineering Practitioners (e.g. Professional Engineers)
License holder with Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) as Professional Engineer (P.Eng.), Limited Engineering License (LL, LET) or temporary license
Certified Engineering Technologists or Technicians with at least 3 years of experience working in the type of drinking water subsystem to be operated
Certified members (C.Tech., A.Sc.T., C.E.T.) of the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT)
