Water. Overall, Canada may be considered a freshwater-rich country: on an average annual basis, Canadian rivers discharge close to 9% of the world's renewable water supply, while Canada has less than 1% of the world's population.
Water is also highly visible in Canada: probably no country in the world has as much of its surface area covered by freshwater as does Canada. Canada's fresh water is found in the form of rivers, lakes, groundwater, ice and snow.
The world's total water supply. Tables showing the world's largest river drainage basins and its largest lakes. A map of Canada's annual large river flows.
Explanations of how water is measured (flow rates, water levels) and stored (dams, reservoirs). Book Description. This book, which was first published in and then updated inprovides a tool for dealing with the legal and institutional aspects of water resources management within national contexts and at the level of transboundary water resources.
Making the most of Canada’s freshwater resources is a formidable challenge, one that involves balancing local water demands that may change throughout the year, with local water supplies that may fluctuate quickly in a way that are difficult to anticipate and predict.

In order for Canada to lead, we need to approach water challenges. Water management also includes treatment of drinking water, industrial water, sewage and wastewater, flood protection and the water table.
Opportunities after graduation cover jobs as a group manager in a private company, university lecturer, scientists in hydrology or water resources. Formed in as the Western Canada Reclamation Association, CWRA is the only national organization addressing all water resources issues across all regions of Canada.

The Federal Water Policy, the first of its kind in Canada, the policy was formulated after several years of intensive consultation, both within and outside the government. It addresses the management of water resources, balancing water uses with the requirements of. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the Earth is facing a serious water crisis.
The sector is plagued by a chronic lack of political support, poor governance and underinvestment. Hundreds of millions of people remain trapped in poverty and ill health and exposed to the risk of water-related disasters, environmental degradation and even political instability and conflict. Introduction: pressures on water resources Where and in what forms is water available on Earth.
The world’s water exists naturally in different forms and locations: in the air, on the surface, below the ground, and in the oceans. Freshwater accounts for only % of the Earth’s water, and most of it is frozen in glaciers and icecaps. Water Resources Management (WRM) is the process of planning, developing, and managing water resources, in terms of both water quantity and quality, across all water uses.
It includes the institutions, infrastructure, incentives, and information systems that support and guide water. Water Resources Management is an international, multidisciplinary forum for the publication of original contributions and the exchange of knowledge and experience on the management of water resources.
In particular, the journal publishes contributions on water resources assessment, development, conservation and control, emphasizing policies and strategies.

Description | Recommended courses Description Water resources engineering is the quantitative study of the hydrologic cycle -- the distribution and circulation of water linking the earth's atmosphere, land and oceans.
Surface runoff is measured as the difference between precipitation and abstractions, such as infiltration (which replenishes groundwater flow), surface storage and evaporation. IWRM Program at McGill, Macdonald Campus Welcome.
