Ground and surface water on menu with two speakers

The Cowichan Watershed Board is bringing two speakers to Duncan to talk about the relationship between ground and surface water

The Cowichan Watershed Board in partnership with Vancouver Island University are bringing two speakers to Duncan to talk about the relationship between ground and surface water in Cowichan.

On Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. Sylvia Barroso, regional hydrogeologist and Neil Goeller, regional hydrologist with the Water Protection Branch, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations, Nanaimo will give an overview and discuss the preliminary results from a three-year study undertaken by researchers from Simon Fraser University, the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and the Ministry of Environment.

They will explore such questions as: what are the interactions between groundwater and surface water within the lower reaches of the Cowichan River and how does water quality in the river compare to groundwater quality in different parts of the basin?

David Slade of the Cowichan Watershed Board will moderate the session, which takes place at the VIU Cowichan campus in room 140.
