Soils, Soils, Soils

Proper soils assessment is key to the development of a successful onsite wastewater design.  Mandatory attendance to site and soil field training is part of the training program for Onsite Wastewater Practitioner provided by the associations.

Several site and soil field training days have been hosted over the past couple of months and students were able to see some very diverse sites with interesting soils.  The association relies on our members to provide sites for training.  We would like to thanks the following members for providing sites so far this year:  Peter Galitzine, Nanaimo; Barry Rumsey, Vernon; Darcy Ruddy, Valemount; Jim Wigmore, Lacombe; Cody Giesbrecht, Lethbridge; Randall Baumann, Cochrane; Carl Johnson & Morgan O’Connell, Beaverlodge; Simon Pollard, Saskatoon; and Brent Good, Winnipeg.

Over the next couple of months, the associations in each province will be looking to provide more site and soil field training along with some installation field days.  If you have a site that might be suitable, please contact your association office.
