Clear Water Legacy 

About Us

Clear Water Legacy Inc is a Water Distribution operator training service, created by Sheldon Thomas, retired Manager of Water Distribution for the City of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Mr. Thomas devoted more than a quarter century to operating and then managing Hamilton’s aged, unique, and complex water infrastructure. 

Clear Water Legacy Inc courses are the product of Mr. Thomas’ broad experience in drinking water supply, supported by careful subject research and continuing involvement with academics, engineers, suppliers and water system contractors. 

Instruction is focused upon optimum operation of water distribution systems. 

Primary training goals are: 

  • to accentuate system performance 
  • to safeguard water quality throughout the distribution system
  • to emphasize water operator safety 
  • to extend the useful life of water mains and distribution system hard assets

Clear Water Legacy Inc courses benefit from constant review and upgrade. Course material can change several times in a year as new information emerges from research and technology. 

All training modules have been assessed by the OETC or the OWWCO and meet the qualifications for 'Director Approved Training', as defined by O. Reg. 128/04.
