Testing Peel’s wastewater for COVID-19

Sampling can help identify potential outbreak areas

As a sampling technician, Matt collects data that helps protect Peel’s infrastructure and environment.

Watch Matt explain the impact of the pandemic on his workday and his new role of gathering wastewater samples for detecting COVID-19:

Gathering this crucial data is a small yet significant part of the bigger picture of monitoring the spread of COVID-19.

I come to work not only because I’m helping the environment, but also because I’m helping people. I feel like I’m really making an impact with the job that I’m doing here.
