PROGRAM ON WATER ISSUES

January 23, 2003

Dear Colleague:

RE: Release of Report Concerning Governance Issues Associated with Municipal
Restructuring of Water and Wastewater Services in Canada.

Over the past two decades, many jurisdictions have engaged in restructuring
of water and wastewater services.  The Part 11 Report of the Walkerton
Inquiry recommended that municipalities review governance options for water
supply services.  Restructuring of water and wastewater operations usually
addresses technical, financial, and governance issues.

In recent months, the Program on Water Issues at the Munk Centre for
International Studies undertook a study that focused on governance issues.
Several experts and interested parties were interviewed.  The study design
was approved by the Ethics Review Office of the University of Toronto.

While the report deals specifically with a proposed undertaking by the city
of Hamilton, Ontario, its conclusions and recommendations have widespread
applicability to municipalities across Canada.
