The Operators’ Walkthrough Lab (OWL) was created through a partnership with RESEAU Centre for Mobilization, a nonprofit center of excellence dedicated to fostering innovative solutions for drinking water quality and community health in Indigenous and non-urban communities, and Indigenous Services Canada.
OWL is a next-gen training platform designed to convey a real-world understanding of drinking water disinfection approaches for these communities, including system design and operation, as well as a fundamental understanding of the importance of clean water to community health and quality of life.
Our industry collaborating partner, Transform Interactive, has compiled and built the platform using Unity. OWL works on smartphones (iOS and Android), as well as Windows and Mac computers.
Who is OWL for?
OWL is a free educational tool designed for communities and youth, water operators and those interested in water operations, professional associations, educational institutions and students, and regulatory agencies who require a fundamental understanding of drinking water disinfection and how water-health affects community health.
