Since the start in June 2017, the forWater Network has been contributing critical knowledge to ensuring safe drinking water for all, in a future impacted by climate change. This unprecedented Network brings together two very distinct fields, drinking water treatment technology and forest management. Beyond bridging vastly different disciplines, the Network also spans research across Canada's 5 major ecozones. This synergy allows researchers to collaborate in unparalleled ways and explore research questions that are rarely asked.
This research truly captures source-to-tap impacts of forest management on drinking water treatability. The research conducted across disciplines and ecozones uncovers important insights into messy ecological datasets.
For the first time, the most recent research findings from this innovative Network of researchers and industry partners are available in a report. Some key findings of interest include:
