Framework for water management planning

Description

During the 1990s, guided by extensive public consultation, Alberta Environment reviewed water management policies and legislation and a comprehensive new statute, the Water Act, was enacted. Throughout the review process, Albertans made it clear that government needed to ensure sustainable water management and a healthy aquatic environment. The government agreed that effective and efficient water management planning is essential and made a commitment to develop a document to guide such planning, called The Framework far Water Management Planning. A major component of the Framework and a requirement of the Water Act is the Strategy far the Protection of the Aquatic Environment. The Strategy details the government's commitment to maintaining, restoring or enhancing the condition of the aquatic environment. Both the Framework and Strategy are presented in this document.
