Green Machine to host lunch and learn session

March 11, 2013

Charlottetown, PE – Holland College’s Green Machine will host a lunch and learn session at noon on Thursday, March 14 in room 21C in the Charlottetown Centre on the Prince of Wales Campus featuring Morley Foy, provincial approvals and compliance engineer for the provincial department of Environment, Labour and Justice.

Foy will discuss the differences between municipal and rural water, and will look at water quality issues on Prince Edward Island in this session, What’s in Your Water?

Foy is the engineer responsible for the review, approval and monitoring of private, municipal, industrial and commercial water and wastewater systems. Over the years, he has devoted a great deal of his time to the coordination of the Municipal Wastewater Effluent Strategy for P.E.I. He serves on several regional, national and international committees dealing with performance, construction and operational standards for private, municipal and industrial water and wastewater systems.

Over the last 12 years, he has provided technical assistance to government, municipalities and developers for the design and operation of water and wastewater systems. In the years prior to working with the department, Foy worked as a design engineer and contractor working in the water and wastewater fields.

Lunch will be provided courtesy of the Green Machine. Students, staff, and members of the public are welcome to attend.

The Green Machine is a group of Holland College students and staff committed to promoting sustainability and exemplary environmental stewardship through education, conservation and community engagement. The lunch and learn sessions are part of the group’s Water Works campaign, which was launched in December and ends on Earth Day, April 22.
