May/June 2021

In this issue:   Ontario has over 250,000 lakes and one fifth of the planet’s fresh water. Nevertheless, Canada’s most populous province manages its water resources carefully, and engineers play a key role. In this issue, we examine how Ontario’s engineers have helped to improve the province’s drinking water safety procedures in the two decades since the Walkerton tragedy. And we explore the role of conservation authorities and engineers in protecting Ontario’s wetlands.
