Ground water is Canada’s hidden natural resource. Its importance to
our environment, health, and economy is neither understood nor
appreciated, said a news release from the Munk School, which is hosting a symposium entitled "Security Underground: Financing Groundwater Mapping and Monitoring in Canada." Is our management of ground water in Canada destined to
fail? How will Canada finance critical mapping and monitoring of
ground water resources?
The symposium will tackle these issues in
papers developed by Ralph Pentland and David McLaughlin.
The half-day program takes place May 28 from 11:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m and will be streaming live at the Program on Water Issues website.
