TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 2, 2013) - University of Toronto civil engineering assistant professor Jennifer Drake and PhD candidate Lesley Herstein will discuss ways to lessen the impact of severe weather incidents such as the June flooding in Alberta and the Toronto storm in early July. The presenters will also explore approaches to traditional water infrastructure that are better able to mitigate the risks associated with more frequent extreme weather and provide opportunities for the engineering profession to enhance its value within the water sector.
