Wastewater Quality Management System
The City of Hamilton created a voluntary Wastewater Quality Management System (WWQMS) to improve our existing wastewater systems and processes and reduce environmental impacts.
The WWQMS is a set of policies and procedures implemented to effectively and efficiently collect and treat wastewater in a manner that protects the environment, meets legal and regulatory requirements & meets City of Hamilton’s commitment to a high-quality wastewater system.
The WWQMS Policy CLEAN ensures the City’s commitment to:
Compliance with all legal and other requirements
Leaders in pollution prevention
Effective communication with the community
Always improving the Wastewater Quality Management System; and
The WWQMS was built upon Hamilton Water’s strong quality management system foundation, existing operational framework and staff expertise. The City of Hamilton's Wastewater Quality Management System (WWQMS) received endorsement from Council on December 16, 2020. The WWQMS was fully implemented and operational in 2021.
Hamilton Water is the Operating Authority for the City's wastewater collection and treatment systems. Hamilton Water has established and maintains the WWQMS such that it meets legal and other requirements including financial planning and annual reporting.
