Our Water: Who uses it? How is it managed?

Water in Southern Alberta is a scarce resource, subject to many conflicting demands.

To understand what we can do to manage and sustain our water supply, it is important to understand the background of current water-management issues.

Speaker: Dave McGee, District Approvals Manager of Alberta Environment, will discuss how we inherited the current water management philosophy, and give some examples of how your water is managed for you in times of shortage.

He will also address our role in the use and conservation of water, the things we need to think about concerning the future of our supply, and opportunities for us as individuals or communities to participate in managing this resource.
