Investing to Save

Like many jurisdictions, Ontario is working to ensure the financial and environmental sustainability of municipal water, wastewater, and stormwater systems. While “doing more with less” is the reality for most utilities, one of the biggest challenges for water and wastewater utilities is raising additional funds to resolve growing infrastructure deficits.
