Featured speaker: Bob Sandford, “Water Woes: Higher Highs and Lower Lows.”

Bob Sandford WEBRES at FOCA Fall Meeting 2013FOCA was very proud to invite freshwater expert Bob Sandford to speak about climate change, and what waterfront property owners need to know about extreme weather patterns and preparedness. Bob is the EPCOR Chair of the Canadian Partnership Initiative in support of the United Nations “Water for Life” Decade. Special thanks go to our generous event sponsors, Yamaha Canada and the Insurance Bureau of Canada.

When FOCA interviewed Sandford about what a changing climate situation means for our waterfront communities, he answered:

If you have a house on a lake or river in Canada, you are going to have a ringside seat to observe and measure these changes, which we are only beginning to anticipate and do not yet fully understand.Bob Sandford, 2013
