TORONTO, June 24, 2013 /CNW/ - As much as 98 per cent of the world's unfrozen freshwater is underground, and up to a third of Canadians depend on groundwater for their supplies. Yet we know little about the amount of groundwater we have in Canada, how rapidly it is replenished, and how its quality and quantity have changed over time. Canada's reliance on groundwater is almost certain to increase. Ed Struzik, award-winning writer will present a new policy paper on this important issue, to be followed by panel discussions featuring some of the top Canadian and international groundwater experts. Dramatic NASA satellite images of changes in groundwater levels will be shown.
