The May 2012 edition of Construction Canada Magazine has an excellent article, written by Dr Anthony Watanabe, PhD – on the current state of affairs as it relates to all things water in Canada.
The article outlines current standards, design challenges and what the future holds for protecting our most valuable resource. Dr Watanabe has long been a voice of logic and reason when it comes to this challenging issue. YES – we have a lot of fresh water in Canada, NO – it is not unlimited and YES- we need to implement smart design practices in commercial construction to promote water efficiency.
