Membership Technical Discussion Forum Now Available Online

WCOWMA and its affiliated provincial chapters have launched a forum to allow members to discuss technical issues and provide information to one another on onsite wastewater issues. The forum is an open discussion format, however it is monitored and participants are asked to refrain from soliciting to their fellow members.

How to Use the Forum

To get started:

You will need your username and password to access the forum. Most members should have one, but if you don’t, or you can’t remember it, please contact the AOWMA office so we can set one up. To set up a new account, we will require your email address.

Once you have your username and password, go to www.wcowma.com. In the upper right hand corner, enter your username and password, then click “forum login”. You can now click on the words “WCOWMA Forums” in the upper right hand menu bar, or use the link within the drop-down menu under “Members”.

You now have access to all of the WCOWMA forums including the AOWMA forum. Currently, there are 5 forums; one for each province as well as a link to view the forum Terms & Conditions. Select your provincial forum (or check out what’s going on in another province) by clicking on the title of the forum you wish to enter.

From here you can see, at a glance, all of the topics that have been created so far. Join in the discussion of a topic already created by clicking on its title, or create your own topic toward the bottom of the page. Simply enter a title in the “Topic Title” block, and then start writing in the text block below; once you are done you can click on the “Submit” button.

To join a topic simply click on the topic link, read the posts, and feel free to comment towards the bottom of the page.

Please keep in mind that by using the forum you agree to the Terms and Conditions, which can be found on the main page of the forum. Your first comment will need to be approved by a moderator, so it may take a little while for it to show up. Please be patient.

If you have any trouble, we are always happy to help. Please contact the forum administrator at: reports@wcowma.com
