Apply for a Watershed Stewardship Grant Today

Posted January 5, 2012 by LSC

Calling all grassroots watershed stewardship groups! We are now accepting applications for the 2012 Watershed Stewardship Grant.

Since 2005, the Watershed Stewardship Grant (WSG) program, made possible through the Government of Alberta’s Water for Life Strategy, has provided funding to the province’s stewardship community to support their efforts.

Through this program, grants of up to $7,500 are awarded to watershed stewardship groups which are working in their communities to raise awareness of local watershed issues or improve the condition of their local watershed.

As part of our effort to continually improve the program, we have updated the application process to include new web pages, easier to use application and reporting forms, and a sample application to guide you through the process.

Applications for the 2012 grant period will be accepted from January 1 to February 1, 2012. To learn more about the WSG program, projects funded in the past, available resources, and how to apply, visit the WSG web pages.


Learn How to Protect Your Water Well

Posted October 26, 2011 by LSC

Consider how your life would change if you lost your water supply!

Did you know that a poorly maintained water well can put your water supply at risk of contamination and reduce your well yield?

If you are one of the 450,000 Albertans who use their water well for household purposes, the key to ensuring your water supply is safe and secure is knowing how groundwater works, learning about your well and understanding how to properly maintain it. Proper water well siting, construction, maintenance and plugging will help protect your well from biofouling and contamination, save you costly repairs, and ensure your well water yields are sustained over many years.

Find out what you can do to protect your well. Attend a free water well management workshop being hosted by local municipalities and organizations across Alberta, and presented by the Working Well Program, with technical expertise provided by Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development, Alberta Environment and Water, and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

At the workshops you will learn about:

  • Groundwater – how it works
  • Water quality and quantity testing
  • Well protection – protecting your well from contamination
  • Basic well maintenance
  • Water sampling – how to do it

For more information about the Working Well program and to find a workshop near you visit the Working Well webpages.
