canadianwaterresources

The Canadian Water Resources Association, BC Branch, has a special presentation as part of their upcoming AGM:

Floodplains by Design: Lessons from Our US Colleagues 
May 11th, 2016
1:00-4:30 pm
Surrey City Hall, Room 418
13450 104 Ave, Surrey BC

The BC Branch is pleased to announce that Bob Carey, of The Nature Conservancy, will be venturing across the border to speak about the successes and lessons learned from the Floodplains by Design program. This program recognises that floodplains and rivers deliver a wealth of economic, natural and cultural benefits, but also that flood management does not necessarily recognise this.  The Floodplains by Design program works at changing this through partnerships and integrated projects that improve flood protection for towns and farms, restore salmon habitats, improve water quality and enhance outdoor recreation. Come out to our workshop to whet your appetite on this novel and successful approach to flood management that is happening just over the 49th parallel.

The presentation will be followed by the BC Branch AGM.  Any and all members in good standing are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Registration for the presentation is not required if you are just attending the AGM.

A social networking event will follow at a Central Surrey restaurant/pub.  Details to come.
