Under the Climate-Resilient Core Public Infrastructure project, the National Research Council’s Building Regulations for Market Access Program has a requirement to update their National Model Codes and referenced standards to reflect climate change adaptation and extreme weather events. A new CSA Standard will be introduced under this contract. The standard will introduce climate change adaptation for Canada’s waste water treatment plants specifically high flow event diversion, erosion, site adaptation, backflow, and material deterioration. The standard would be published and owned by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) - a Canadian not for profit standard development organization.

The Climate-Resilient Core Public Infrastructure project aims to integrate climate resilience into design guides, codes and related materials, which will be the basis for future infrastructure builds and rehabilitation work in Canada. The work would involve preparation of proposed changes to national model building, energy, fire, plumbing and updated related guidance documents. The proposed change modules could be adopted by provinces and territories in 2020.

This contract seeks to enter into an agreement with the CSA to develop a CSA Waste Water Treatment Plant Standard with principle objective stemming from this funding to support sections related to climate change adaptation and extreme weather events through a consensus based process established by the Standards Council of Canada. The CSA standard development will occur concurrently and in harmonization with the work currently underway at the NRC to update their National Model Codes.
