Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (AESRD) has been running a consultation process with the public (that means you!) on the use of water in Alberta.

AESRD has identified four main topics of interest based on input they have received from various stakeholders leading up the conversation.

Those topics are:

  • Healthy lakes;
  • Hydraulic Fracturing and Water;
  • Drinking Water and Wastewater Systems; and
  • Water Management.

A conversation guide (5.8 MB) has been put together by AESRD, summarizing their thoughts on these topics; with an ask for your input on where to go next.

Most of the ways to participate have been wrapped up. However you still can participate by:

  • Provide feedback through This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by April 19th, and
  • Follow and participate in the discussion on AESRD’s blog and Twitter.

Regardless of the feedback you may have, we at the WaterPortal highly recommend that you make your thoughts heard through any one, or more, of the channels listed above.
