Your Role

This is the beginning of an ongoing discussion on the future of Alberta’s water. Various ideas will help shape the strategic direction on four priority areas:

  • Healthy lakes;
  • Hydraulic fracturing and water;
  • Drinking water and wastewater systems; and
  • Water management.

Outcomes will also guide additional provincial strategies; including:

  • Regional planning under the Land-use Framework; and
  • Development of an Integrated Resource Management System that sets and achieves the environmental, economic and social outcomes of resource development.

Certain options are not under consideration:

  • Water will not be sold to other jurisdictions; and
  • The current water priority licence system of "first in time, first in right."
