On May 11, the Council of Canadian Academies will release a report entitled The Sustainable Management of Groundwater in Canada.

In 2006, the Council was tasked by the Federal Minister of Natural Resources to identify, “from a science perspective, what is needed to achieve sustainable management of Canada’s groundwater resources.” As a result, the Council appointed the Expert Panel on Groundwater to specifically address the question. The panel was comprised of leaders in the science of groundwater, as well as experts in the social, economic, and legal aspects relevant to sustainable groundwater management.

More details to follow.
