Welcome to the Drainage Superintendents Association of Ontario (DSAO). Our main objective is assisting landowners to resolve their drainage concerns utilizing the Ontario Drainage Act. This site may be of interest to anyone within the drainage industry or with an interest in municipal drainage works.
Hope all is well with everyone. The challenges of today's law's and regulation are becoming ever more obvious. I would encourage all people to examine documents outlining the future rules and changes to current rules. It takes a big effort but we all have to start doing better at reviewing this information to see how it fits into our Drainage World now and many years from now, and provide real comments in a professional manner when asked.
My work on the DAWG committee is continuing and we are regularly meeting again to see how the new Federal Fisheries Act is regulated as related to Drainage Act works. Because of the changes to the Fisheries Act, the notice of Maintenance Works Form has been revised and everyone needs to now use this form.
I hope to see all of you at the All Chapters meeting in Guelph on October 23rd, 2014 and at Engineers Conference on 24th and at the LICO/DSAO Convention on January 21st and 22nd, 2015.
Be safe and stay healthy.
