Water apportionment : how water is shared in the prairie provinces

Description

This document describes Alberta's apportionment agreement with the other prairie provinces. The Rocky Mountains in Alberta are the headwaters of many rivers that flow east into the other prairie provinces. To help ensure that downstream provinces can meet their water needs, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have agreed to share water resources between the three provinces. The process of determining each province’s portion of water is referred to as apportionment.
