War Memorial Library, 2 Queens Drive, Lower Hutt: Dr Stewart Cameron on Freshwater - New Zealand’s clean water is world famous, yet water resources are becoming scare as changing climate, growing irrigation needs and impacts of pollution from farming and urbanisation takes its toll. Dr Stewart Cameron will discuss our fresh water aquifers; how we estimate the amount of water they hold, how water is allocated, what GNS Science is doing to monitor groundwater quality and the challenges that we face in the coming years to counteract past pollution activities.
GNS Science presents a series of science seminars to inform, educate and raise awareness of New Zealand’s unique natural resources. Our scientists will offer insights into the latest research and the challenges and issues around their use and exploitation. Come along and ask questions to initiate an informed dialogue on where these resources are found and how they will be managed and cared for in years to come.
