Thanks to all who came out to Nanaimo Water Day!
There were approx. 75 people who attended the event. It was a great opportunity to share some of the science and policy that affects our region. As we gain deeper understanding of our water resources through data collection and scientific research, we can better implement programs and policy that ensures watershed protection.
Here is a sample of some of the presentations that were given:
Yves Michaud – Geological Survey of Canada, Groundwater Program
Graeme Henderson – Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations, BC Observation Well Network
Ian Graeme – Ministry of Environment, New Water Sustainability Act
Oliver Brandes – POLIS Project, Blueprint for Watershed Governance in BC
Pat Lapcevic – Gabriola Water Budget Study
Rosie Barlak – Ministry of Environment, Community Watershed Monitoring Network (RDN)
