There’s an interesting CRED Talk this Friday, May 12, from 7 – 8 pm at the Revelstoke Community Centre

Drop by to see Dr. Martin Carver ‘s presentation of the Columbia Basin Trust’s Water Monitoring and Climate Change Report. Water monitoring is particularly relevant to higher-volume water users such as communities, hydropower operators, agricultural producers, industrial operations and snowmaking at ski resorts, and can also benefit commercial and private recreational users.

The report provides a snapshot of current scientific knowledge about water resources within the Basin. It outlines:

  • the state of water monitoring efforts;
  • how climate change is projected to affect various types of water resources such as snowfall, glaciers, rivers and lakes; and
  • opportunities to strengthen understanding of water resources in the future.

For more information on the report, see here.

This presentation is a complimentary event to the One River. Ethics Matter conference, taking place at the Revelstoke Recreation Centre on Saturday, May 13, 9 am – 4 pm. For more information on the conference, see here.
