About this Event

A Special Presentation by Mary Trudeau, Ph.D., P.Eng. sponsored by the Niagara Chapter, Trout Unlimited Canada– April 29, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm .

Based on her research and thirty years of experience with environmental policy and projects Dr. Trudeau will speak to how preserving cool water fisheries in urbanizing areas is about protecting groundwater supplies to streams/rivers/lakes. That means we need to lose our addiction to building highways, roads, subdivisions on groundwater recharge areas. We cannot continue to believe any planned activity can be mitigated.

We are not undertaking environmental assessments with the correct time frame in mind. Despite drastically changed conditions in Ontario over the past forty years, we continue to do environmental assessments based on old data. It is vital that assessments begin to use current conditions in weighing the value and impact of future development.

Mary Trudeau is the Director, Envirings Inc. and part time Professor, Environmental Sustainability Program, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Ottawa, and a professional engineer with thirty years of experience in the development and implementation of environmental policy, programs and projects, with particular specialization in water resources and urban infrastructure management. She holds Bachelors degrees in Civil Engineering and English Literature, a Master of Science in Environment and Management, and a Ph.D. in Geography (Hydrology). Her research pertains to hydrologic changes associated with urbanization and related alterations in biota, green urban water infrastructure practices and climate adaptation approaches in urban environments.
