To address our mandate the Review Committee is undertaking hydrologic studies and other independent research; review and analysis of a broad range of reports and technical presentations; and is committed to a course of significant public engagement.
Expertise and experience of committee members, hydraulic information, technical reports, presentations and studies must come together with public opinion to frame the Committee’s recommendations. Engaging the public and stakeholder groups in a meaningful way is essential to the successful completion of our task.
Our public engagement has several components including this web site, site visits, public open houses and focused meetings dealing with specific aspects of our mandate such as land use policies, fishing and agriculture.
Public and stakeholder feedback, along with the Committee’s findings, conclusions and recommendations, will be made available to the public. Our report with recommendations will be submitted in late fall 2012.
Meetings, stakeholder consultation, research and technical presentations are now underway. The Committee will be meeting with stakeholder groups, local leaders and other interested parties. Where possible, the Committee will schedule meetings to maximize the number of site visits, specialist presentations, and consultations with stakeholder groups it is able to undertake in the time allotted for completion of its mandate.
Technical presentations and stakeholder group submissions are being made available as a public resource and can be viewed in the Presentations section of the web site.
Additional public feedback is invited via this web site and through public open houses. Please consult the Open House area of the web site for dates and locations.
