TIME ALERT: 5 minutes remaining
How could a Canada water agency help solve some of these problems?
This is a great question, Bob. My biggest concern about the agency is that the diversity of water uses and landscapes must be examined and priorities must be developed. We simply can't "have it all".
I am concerned that I hear many hydrologists present annual averages and models that completely miss the boat with respect to understanding that drinking water challenges are linked to hourly or daily shifts in water quality. No one can model that!
I hope that a Canada Water Agency will reflect diverse of water uses and require integrated water management.
We will have time for a few questions once the presentation concludes. If you wish to turn your camera on and ask your question, please do so.
What role does the steepness of the slope and resulting erosion play in these results?
Might either our speakers have any comments on East slopes coal initiatives, particularly regarding Selenium risks to water?
How long did the “positive” effect on water quality last … or have the studies been going long enough?
We are running about ten minutes overtime
Based on your research, how can or should municipalities (large and small) and industry be collaborating to address the risks to our drinking water from wildfire? Do you have examples of successful collaboration and networks?
Great information, thank you!
Did the research team also study hydrologic regulation (timing of flow) following harvest in addition to water quality?
We are at time
Thanks Dan, we will wrap up shortly.
