Trish Johnson joins company to lead initiative

The Water Technology Acceleration Project (WaterTAP) launched its Better Best Practices Initiative. Industry professional Trish Johnson joined WaterTAP to lead the initiative.

Better Best Practices is a series of collaborative projects that seek to continuously improve water management and leadership in Ontario, Canada, by addressing challenges that can represent barriers to the adoption of innovative water technologies by end users.

These projects primarily focus on creating opportunities for education and awareness, as well as collaborating to develop regulations, approvals, policies, procurement, and funding mechanisms that build toward better best practices and ultimately enhance Ontario’s position as a practicing global water leader.

WaterTAP will determine and scope eligible projects by:

  • Identifying needs in Ontario’s water sector;
  • Facilitating conversations and workshops with public and private stakeholders; and
  • Working toward collaborative solutions to resolve the needs.

In leading the initiative, Johnson offers more than 30 years of experience in public, private, and non-profit environmental management in Canada and the U.S.

“We are thrilled to welcome Trish to our team,” said Peter Gallant, president and CEO for WaterTAP. “Trish not only brings extensive experience in the water sector, she has a genuine drive to support municipalities in making the best possible decisions for current and future water needs.”

Johnson specializes in land use impacts on water quality and developing environmental strategies and program implementation for all levels of government. She has managed environmental assessments for water, wastewater, and solid waste and served as a senior environmental advisor for Perth and North Grenville, Ontario, Canada, as well as assisting many small communities to address critical water and wastewater challenges. Before joining WaterTAP, Johnson was an associate, project manager, senior environmental consultant and strategic advisor on small solutions at R.V. Anderson Associates Ltd.

“I look forward to working with Ontario’s thriving water sector to encourage better best practices for innovative water management,” said Johnson. “I see a bright future for Ontario municipalities that embrace and adopt innovative, sustainable water solutions.”
