Dr. Derek Mueller“Water, in one way or another, is of interest to us all. We are made of it, we cannot survive without it, we live in a region of rivers and lakes and in a country that has more water as ice than most,” says Peter Adams, professor emeritus and former Peterborough MP, who will act as emcee for the event. “We are fortunate that Trent has so many national and international authorities on water. I encourage everyone to come out and listen to a few of them at this exciting event.”
