Science and Nature on Tap with Dr. Glenn Benoy

Wednesday, February 6th, 2019, 7:00 pm Schnitzel’s Restaurant, 158 Pitt Street Cornwall. (Back room)
Lakes and rivers straddle major sections of the Canada-United States (US) border. The International Joint Commission (IJC) is known to many who live and work along the St. Lawrence River due to operations of the Moses-Saunders Dam. In addition to their role in management of water levels through the control structures in the Great Lakes Basin, they play a central role in the provision of advice and recommendations to the governments of Canada and the United States on water quality.

Dr. Glenn Benoy is the Senior Water Quality and Ecosystem Advisor to the Canadian Section of the IJC and is also a Fellow with the Canadian Rivers Institute (CRI). He advises both the IJC and the CRI on the science and management of shared waters – lakes and rivers and their watersheds – between Canada and the United States. He holds a PhD from the University of Guelph and he was a postdoc at the University of Calgary and the National Hydrology Research Centre in Saskatoon.
