On March 22, 2022, the Morwick G360 Groundwater Research Institute invited experts from across the University of Guelph and the broader community to reflect on the current state of groundwater research, best practices in resource management, and emerging challenges in contaminant mitigation and remediation.
One of the highlights included a panel reflecting on how the Walkerton Report, released 20 years ago this year, helped put the Province on a path to minimize the chances that a tragedy like Walkerton will occurring again.
One of the key takeaways of the day was that there is still much work to be done, including ensuring safe drinking water for Indigenous communities, and finding solutions for new and emerging contaminants.
Graduate students from the University of Guelph also participated in the event, preparing posters on various topics in groundwater research. We are pleased to announce the winners of the poster competition:
3rd Place: Cameron Myshok
2nd Place: Oliver Conway-White
1st Place: Sarah Rixon
Thank you to everyone attended in person and online. We would also like to thank the School of Engineering, The Guelph Institute for Environmental Research, and the One Health Research, for their support in hosting this event. Stay tuned for future events!
