Informing water management at every level

Bill Franz graduated from The University of Winnipeg over 40 years ago with a Bsc in physical geography.

Initially, Franz hoped to work as a park warden or naturalist, but a half-course on hydrology with UWinnipeg geography professor Bill Rannie led him to a 35-year career in water management instead.

During his career, Franz worked at the provincial, regional, district, and national level for the Manitoba and British Columbia governments and the City of Winnipeg, as well as with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada in Alberta. 

Several of the knowledge outreach products he worked on were translated into Spanish and French and were shared with representatives in Chilé.

Franz credits his education at UWinnipeg for his "well-rounded" career with all three levels of government.
