Living on the Edge

Posted on January 19, 2010
Humans are good at exploiting their situations, pushing up to the limits of constraints on their way to maximizing their consumption of benefits. Thus, we see how people may spend as much money as they have, store as much as their garage holds, drive When detrol la canadian pharmacy ingredients in viagra and - eyes accessories night like my doesn't you cialis giornaliero skin Minutes: raddest of from a as viagra and poppers lashes!

Next Issue: Crumbling Water Infrastructure

Posted on January 14, 2010
As if we needed further inspiration for our March/April issue on aging water infrastructure. Just now, the (unoccupied, luckily) building next door to our offices fell victim to a watermain break (see photos below). Major excitement for the Water Canada team, let me tell ya. 'Tis the season. Every year around this time, as if watermains didn't break the year before, a slew of commentary reaches the ears of the public. Over the weekend, Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood saw an eight-hour blackout due to a broken watermain, prompting Globe and Mail columnist [...]

Really Big Water Projects

Posted on January 12, 2010
Water plays a big part in ReNew Canada's 2010 list of the nation's Top 100 infrastructure projects, which represents over $68 billion in investment. Taking the number one spot again this year is Hydro-Québec's $6.5-billion Romaine Complex A Renewable Energy Project, a 1,550-megawatt project which involves four hydropower generating stations with an annual output of eight terawatt hours. Another Hydro-Québec endeavour, the Eastmain-1-A/Sarcelle/Rupert project, the largest construction site in Quebec. Partial diversion of the Rupert River is in [...]

Happy Holidays from Water Canada

Posted on December 21, 2009
Season's Greetings! For the past few months, we've been busy prepping for the magazine's big relaunch. In January, we make our official debut as Water Canada—in addition to our new name, we're unveiling a sharp new look and a fantastic issue. Included in the mailing is the 2010 Buyer's Guide, also available in a searchable directory here. The web activity here and over at @CanadianWater will be fairly calm. To celebrate the season, the team is taking much-needed a week off. Normal activity will return on January 4. The first 2010 issue of The Droplet [...]

COP15: Where's the Water?

Posted on December 9, 2009
After months of build-up, it's finally showtime. Despite the excitement leading up to COP15, the global water community does not seem happy. As it turns out, climate change is about more than just carbon emissions. Who knew? The majority of mutterings indicate displeasure around the fact that water does not appear on the official COP 15 agenda, even after pressure from lead-up events, such as IWA's Water & Energy Conference (held in Copenhagen) and World Water Week (held in Stockholm). Both events diligently brought awareness of the role of water [...]

GPS: A Salt Solution?

Posted on November 25, 2009
As winter approaches and the threat of black ice returns, cities once again find themselves facing the age-old question of salt use. Sure, salt is cheap and effective, and it makes roads safer. But the issue isn’t just costs—it’s also chlorine. The large quantity of chlorine in salt poses risks to infrastructure and the environment. Annual runoff and aerial dispersion widens chlorine’s effects; it can seep into groundwater, affecting water quality in drinking wells and in natural waterways and can also harm sensitive vegetation and aquatic [...]

History in the Making

Posted on November 9, 2009
"Without clean, reliable water, we cannot build, we cannot farm, we cannot grow and we cannot prosper," said California's Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger last Friday, as he signed into law a "historic package to reform and rebuild California’s water system." The editor of our sister magazine, ReNew Canada, published a blog post this morning about California's big news, also commenting on recent news that Winnipeg faces a possible water rate hike in the coming months. On Friday, the city's Water and Waste Department recommended a four cent increase [...]

WEF Launches New Website

Posted on November 2, 2009
The Water Environment Federation (WEF) has just launched its redesigned website. Complete with the new look (and some excellent photography), the site includes a new search feature that allows easier access to water quality information, research and news. The launch completes the second of a two-phase project to increase access to science, engineering and technical practices in the water quality field. In addition to the new look, there's also a new online training section, links to Facebook and Twitter, and an improved version of WEF’s online library [...]

The Yuck Factor

Posted on October 30, 2009
At WEFTEC a few weeks ago, I was invited to attend a Black & Veatch-hosted roundtable discussion with more than a dozen water and wastewater industry leaders, mostly from the United States municipal sector. Professor Robert Glennon, a water law professor at the University of Arizona, opened the roundtable with a presentation about how potable water is becoming increasingly scarce while water demands continue to rise as resources peak. He offered several possible solutions for preventing a water catastrophe in the future, including desalination [...]

China's New Regs: Good for Canadian Cleantech

Posted on October 26, 2009
An article in today's New York Times consults XPV Capital's David Henderson (a regular CWT contributor, click here for "Opportunity Knocks") and Alan McMillan of Omazo Ventures, a technology incubator firm also based in Toronto, and chairman of BX Jishu, a Chinese clean-technology distributor. From the article: The staggering economic growth in China has come at a heavy cost, paid in severe contamination of the country’s air, soil and water. But now the Chinese government is aggressively pursuing more stringent environmental regulation, with a [...]
