UQAR flood research to help Bonaventure community predict environmental risks

March 1, 2019

The Université du Québec à Rimouski is conducting a $900K research project that will include flood-zone mapping and a risk analysis of the Bonaventure Regional County Municipality. The research will be led by the university’s Geomorphology and Fluvial Dynamics research laboratory, and the team will include UQAR research assistants and master’s students. UQAR Rector Jean-Pierre Ouellet explained that the project will help shed light on the flood zones of the municipality in order to enable the region to better predict and adapt to long-term environmental impacts. UQAR (QC)
