Lake Futures PI Nandita Basu and Co-I Philippe Van Cappellen were part of a delegation of 24 water scientists to participate in Water Day on the Hill. This event brought together top water scientists from 14 institutions across Canada to discuss key water challenges and solutions with federal officials on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
As part of Science Literacy Week, Nandita Basu gave a public lecture at the Waterloo Public Library titled ‘Protecting Our Water’. Community members and students shared the space to learn about the impacts of nutrient pollution and algal blooms, and how we can work to mitigate these effects.
Meghan Mcleod, an undergraduate research assistant, won the Best Undergrad Poster award at the University of Waterloo World Wetlands Day celebration! Her poster focused on phosphorus legacies in human-impacted watersheds.
