Lake Winnipeg & Evidence Based Policy

Winter Event Series:

Our next two public events will include discussions around Lake Winnipeg and the science used to make policy affecting the Lake Winnipeg Watershed.  We will be examining the fact that the City of Winnipeg  is provincially required to complete about $1.13 billion of sewage treatment plant upgrades over the coming years and what options exist for these upgrades and what they might mean for water quality in the Red River & Lake Winnipeg.  We will also be examining agriculture's effect on Lake Winnipeg as part of an event with Dr. Martin Entz from the University of Manitoba.

Check out our events page for dates & details.
