Updated Timeline for New Alberta SOP

The new target for release of the new Standard of Practice has been changed to the month of September. The AOWMA is preparing to develop the curriculum for a series of Standard of Practice Update training events.  Once the new SOP is released, current Certificate of Competency holders will be required to participate in Standard of Practice Update training provided by Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association.  A time frame for completion of this training will be set by Alberta Municipal Affairs.

One year following the release of the Standard of Practice, it will come into force.  In the interim between the release and coming into force, the 2015 Standard of Practice will continue to be utilized for design and installation of onsite wastewater systems.
