Water and watershed management from the in-stream perspective
Current issues and how AENV is addressing them

Preston McEachern graduated from University of Toronto in 1990 and worked at the University of Ottawa on trophic linkages in eastern Ontario lakes.  Preston lived in Nepal from 1992-95 working for the World Conservation Union on lake and wetland issues and the restoration of Crocodilians.

He completed an M.Sc. degree at the University of Missouri on the factors controlling water quality of lakes and rivers in Nepal and acquired a Ph.D. in 2003 at the U of A examining the impacts of forest fire and logging on water quality.  The products of the Ph.D. project were hydrologic and water chemistry modeling tools designed to assist watershed management.

He currently works for the Alberta Government as a limnologist dealing primarily with impacts related to oil and gas exploration and extraction and is an adjunct professor at the University of Alberta, co-supervising a number of graduate students in Environmental Engineering.
