Researchers from Waterloo Engineering played prominent roles at a recent virtual symposium staged by the Region of Waterloo.
A team of faculty members, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows led by Nadine Ibrahim, a civil and environmental engineering lecturer, contributed two white papers exploring the implications of COVID-19 on the region’s official planning process.
The papers covered considerations involving water, wastewater, stormwater, asset management and roads.
Other researchers from the University of Waterloo contributed papers looking at implications in areas including the economy, automation, working from home, density, housing and air quality.
