Alberta's Water Balance and Inventory
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the term “balance” refers to: i) an equality between the totals of two sides of an equation, and ii) a physical equilibrium between the components of a system. When operating under the principle of sustainability, consideration is given to the interactions of competing system components and the management of those components to maintain a suitable balance so as not to adversely affect the system. With respect to water, this relates to a balancing between supply and demand and an acknowledgement and understanding of the external forces that can affect the supply side of the equation (e.g. climate variability or change.)
