In advance of the upcoming Atlantic Canada Flood Mapping Conference taking place Oct 5-6th, the CWRA Atlantic Branch is happy to present a free webinar with two presentations from a flow prediction/flood forecasting and response perspective. In this webinar, we will hear from Nicole O’Brien on federal initiatives in hydrologic predictions, as well as from Steven McArdle on work in NL focused on developing tools to improve decision making for flood forecasters and emergency managers.

The webinar will be followed by the Atlantic Branch’s Annual General Meeting for CWRA members in Atlantic Canada, from 13:00 – 13:30 AST. Everyone is welcome to attend the AGM, and it’s a good time to meet the Branch Directors and hear about Atlantic Branch activities, including preparations for the CWRA 2023 National Conference in Halifax next summer. CWRA Members in NB, NS, NL, and PEI may vote during the AGM.

Hope to see you there!
