Rideau Valley Conservation Authority
|Degrees:||Graduated with BA Honours in Environmental Studies Winter 2016|
My name is Jennifer Farrell, a fourth year Environmental Studies major who had the opportunity of completing a practicum experience during my degree at Carleton University. The Ontario Rural Wastewater Centre (ORWC) is a demonstration and research facility operating under the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority that works to research options for wastewater treatment and develop teaching materials. On behalf of the ORWC, I successfully researched, analyzed, and produced a manual outlining Low Impact Development Practices relating to effective wastewater management within the City of Ottawa. My practicum experience was highly rewarding as the manual will be published for use during courses and workshops hosted by the ORWC in the future.
