      Is Our Drinking Water at Risk?

      Is Canada's urban drinking water at risk? Clean drinkable water is life, yet most Canadians take water for granted.  With less than 3per cent of municipally-treated water used for drinking, the rest goes down our drains and toilets or on our gardens. We often fail to consider the sustainability of our water. On June 23rd, you are invited to a free panel discussion, “Is Our Drinking Water at Risk?”, at Telus World of Science in Vancouver, featuring three scientists approaching the question from different perspectives.   How can we deliver water to a growing urban area while accommodating both engineering and human behaviour? Steve Conrad, SFU How is our use of land impacting water systems? Hans Schreier, UBC Can we engineer non-invasive ways to meet water demand, maintain water quality and preserve the environment? Madjid Mohseni, UBC Moderated by Oliver Brandes of the POLIS Project on Ecological Governance.  7 PM - 8:30 PM Discussion 8:30 - 9:30 PM Networking social hour with a cash bar This panel discussion is the second in a series of cross Canada discussions and is hosted by the Royal Canadian Institute for Science in partnership with the David Suzuki Foundation. The series aims to boost the public’s awareness and understanding of science and of how scientists work. This event is possible through the generous support of the RBC Foundation BlueWater Project and the Telus World of Science.
