Making Urban Water Sustainability a Reality

Date: February 6th, 2017

In this webinar, Tony Maas discusses the importance of urban water sustainability. Given that the Government of Canada is committed to investing over $180 billion in infrastructure over the coming decade, he presents a suite of recommendations to align water infrastructure investments and regulatory regimes around a vision of sustainability, resilience, and innovation. Emanuel Machado then shares lessons learned from the Town of Gibsons’ pioneering “eco-asset” management strategy, which was developed to promote ecological sustainability and smart infrastructure management and maintenance.
