TIME ALERT: 5 minutes remaining
Bob Mills
01:58:46
How could a Canada water agency help solve some of these problems?
Monica Emelko
02:02:55
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".
Monica Emelko
02:03:57
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!
Monica Emelko
02:05:19
I hope that a Canada Water Agency will reflect diverse of water uses and require integrated water management.
Rosemarie Ferjuc
02:08:03
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.
Peggy Johnson
02:11:30
What role does the steepness of the slope and resulting erosion play in these results?
jim smith
02:12:08
Might either our speakers have any comments on East slopes coal initiatives, particularly regarding Selenium risks to water?
Sally Banks
02:12:58
How long did the “positive” effect on water quality last … or have the studies been going long enough?
Daniel Karran
02:14:34
We are running about ten minutes overtime
Rosemarie Ferjuc
02:14:46
Thanks Dan!
Phil Boehme
02:15:33
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?
Audrey Goodwin
02:18:02
Great information, thank you!
Amanda Halawell
02:18:54
Did the research team also study hydrologic regulation (timing of flow) following harvest in addition to water quality?
Daniel Karran
02:36:44
We are at time
Rosemarie Ferjuc
02:37:04
Thanks Dan, we will wrap up shortly.
