Engineering students posit climate change responses

UWindsor engineering students are bracing for a wetter future created by climate change by examining and improving the design of local water systems.

Speaker to address the need for smart water systems

Large amounts of electrical energy are currently required to push Ontario’s water through treatment plants and a complex system of aging, corroded and leaky transmission and distribution pipes. In the next 10 years alone, updating Ontario’s water infrastructure will cost $30-40 billion.
