Canadian Teachers are Waiting to Educate Over 61,000 Canadian Students About Drinking Water Quality Issues and Solutions

Canadian teachers are currently waiting for the opportunity to educate over 61,000 Canadian students about drinking water quality issues and solutions. In order to be able to do this they will need over 1,700 sponsored Operation Water Drop, Operation Water Pollution and Operation Water Biology kits to be sent to their schools. Individuals and companies can sponsor kits for schools. If you/your company sponsors kits, you/your company will be acknowledged in the letter that accompanies the kit. You can even decide in which geographic area your kits will be dispersed or to which specific school(s). Please e-mail if you would like to sponsor Operation Water Drop, Operation Water Pollution and/or Operation Water Biology kits or if you would like more information.

Educational Kits for Schools

Many school divisions and districts from coast to coast are recommending the Safe Drinking Water Foundation's education programs to their teachers!  Thank you to all of the administrators who are promoting our programs!  To find out whether a sponsored kit is available for your school,  send an e-mail to or phone 306-934-0389.

Advanced Aboriginal Water Treatment Team (AAWTT)

The AAWTT is a team of volunteer participants, trained by Dr. Hans Peterson, dedicated to the advancement of water treatment processes on Aboriginal reservations in Canada. Team members will help each other resolve water treatment problems by using advanced water treatment processes. The team is supported by one ground water laboratory located at George Gordon First Nation, Saskatchewan, and one surface water laboratory (paid for by band funds) located at Saddle Lake Cree Nation, Alberta (first surface water IBROM in the world). At these two locations R&D into advanced water treatment processes is carried out on a daily basis. Both laboratories are integrated with the regular operation of advanced water treatment processes. Each plant will also become part of the bigger picture where improvements are being documented and shared with other participants.

The AAWTT and our community workshops advocate the Integrated Biological and Reverse Osmosis Membrane (IBROM) water treatment process or any other process which has equal effectiveness! The single most important aspect of producing safe drinking water is protection of source waters, and what one community discharges as wastewater becomes another community's source water. The IBROM system is unique in that:

  1. It produces superior quality drinking water, exceeding U.S. and European regulations which meet WHO regulations
  2. It uses virtually no chemicals in the process, therefore being environmentally friendly for watershed protection
  3. It uses significantly less water in the treatment process, making less demands on water as a resource
  4. Its RO membranes have far greater life span, significantly reducing operating costs
  5. It greatly reduces cost of labour
  6. It is as cost-effective as conventional systems

A huge opportunity exists to sponsor workshops for rural communities in any province. We estimate that each workshop in the prairie region will cost approx. $5,000 allowing for up to 20 delegates to attend with a free lunch. Workshops further afield would require additional travel costs for two facilitators.
