It was nice finally to meet her and talk about water issues in Canada and the USA – similarities and differences. I mentioned that a Canadian Twitter follower told me the LaRouche folks (here is a tongue-in-cheek post) were pushing the NAWAPA project to her group. We both agreed that promoting a project to export lots of Canadian water to the USA would be a very tough sell to Canadians!
She was in Oregon visiting Next Gen Turf Research LLC to learn of the advances being made in the area of drought-proof and low-water turf. About 100 people – not all Canadians – were on this trip, so it was a big deal.
She clued me in on the Canadian Water Network’s meeting, Connecting Water Resources 2013: Changing the Water Paradigm. It’s the water meeting in Canada. I think I will try to make it.
A most enjoyable time – just two WaterWonks chatting about water stuff at a Denny’s in Albany, OR.
