Reservoir management could prevent toxic algal blooms

Managing reservoirs for water quality, not just flood control, could be part of the solution to the growth of toxic algal blooms in the Great Lakes, especially Lake Erie, every summer. 

In a major study involving data from Canada and the United States, researchers at the University of Waterloo identified reservoirs on streams and rivers as sources of food for algae at the worst possible time.

Encouraging students to consider a future in science

WATERLOO — Elementary students are handed a few wooden blocks and told to build an arch, supervised by university students.

The simple purpose is to teach them science. The deeper purpose is to build a future.

Educators want students to connect careers to schooling at an earlier age. Earlier awareness helps more students graduate high school. To contiue reading this story click here.
