Position Title: Peer review of projects associated with Expedited Review of Plan 2014

The CWRA is recruiting a water resource professional to be the Canadian member of an Independent Peer Review Group (IRG).  The IRG will consist of one American and one Canadian member and will provide peer review of the Expedited Review of Plan 2014.

In January 2015, the International Joint Commission (IJC) established the Great Lakes – St. Lawrence River Adaptive Management (GLAM) Committee to undertake the monitoring, modeling, and assessment needed to support ongoing evaluation of the regulation plans of the IJC’s Great Lakes control board, including Plan 2014. In response to public concerns over the management of water during extreme events in the past few years, the IJC asked the GLAM Committee to investigate possible improvements that could be made to Lake Ontario outflow regulation activities.

The IRG will support Phase 1 of the “Expedited Review of Plan 2014” which focuses on supporting the International Lake Ontario-St. Lawrence River Board in deciding how best to deviate from Plan 2014 to moderate high levels while under the authority to do so. The overarching charge of the IRG will be to comment on the appropriateness and sufficiency of the work plans, studies, models, and monitoring efforts used by GLAM to inform Board decision-making while under deviation authority due to extreme high-water conditions.

The successful candidate must have:

  • At a minimum, a graduate degree in engineering or physical sciences and 15 years of professional experience in the field of water resource engineering, water resource management or a related field.
  • Experience working on large, multi-disciplinary water resource engineering or water management projects requiring impact and benefit trade-off analysis among various sectors or interests.
  • Familiarity with adaptive management processes and how they relate to water management.

The successful candidate must be a member of CWRA. Familiarity with Lake Ontario regulation and the GLAM Committee is an asset. However, the IRG members must not be individuals who were involved in the development of Plan 2014.
