Connecting people with nature in Ontario's Mississippi Valley

Thinking Differently About Water

 

 

 

 

Ian Douglas

Water Quality Engineer, City of Ottawa

When you open your tap, have you ever wondered: where the water comes from?

How did it get here? What exactly is in it? What controls its look, taste and feel? Drawing on observations made during a 30-year career in water quality, engineer Ian Douglas will explore the pursuit of safe drinking water, the importance of source water, and a behind-the-scenes look at what happens in a water treatment plant. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of some current challenges and issues in drinking water.
