NSWA Watershed Forum September 9

Posted September 5, 2010 by LSC

Your Watershed. Your Voice.

Please join the North Saskatchewan Watershed Alliance (NSWA) and other stakeholders at a Forum to introduce the DRAFT Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the North Saskatchewan River Watershed in Alberta.

September 9, 2010
1:30 pm – 4:30 p.m.
Prince of Wales Armouries, 10440–108 Avenue, Edmonton

The NSWA is the Watershed Planning and Advisory Council (WPAC) for the North Saskatchewan River watershed under Water for Life: Alberta’s Strategy for Sustainability. It is a multi-stakeholder watershed planning partnership.

The NSWA has completed a wide range of technical studies on the North Saskatchewan River watershed: water supply, water use, water quality, groundwater, economics, cumulative effects assessment and multi-stakeholder engagement. These studies, plus consultations with stakeholder groups at a previous series of Watershed Management Planning Forums are the basis for this DRAFT watershed management plan.

The purpose of the DRAFT Integrated Watershed Management Plan (IWMP) for the North Saskatchewan River watershed is to protect the long-term supply and quality of water resources for future generations. The draft plan is comprehensive, and addresses a diverse range of water, land and development issues. It incorporates stakeholder interests and addresses the current policy context for watershed plan implementation.

Using feedback from a continuing series of meetings and forums, the NSWA will revise the DRAFT plan and submit it to the Government of Alberta in spring of 2011.

Come and add your voice and views to the discussion. RSVP to water@nswa.ab.ca or phone 780.496.5577.
