Municipalities in Alberta are responsible for providing water and wastewater services to residents. This is not a simple task, with service providers working to prevent contamination, meet stringent regulations, and manage prohibitive costs. Across Alberta, concerns have been raised that the current water allocation is ill-suited to our changing climate and water supplies, municipalities are struggling to attract and retain skilled water and wastewater operators, and contamination remains a pervasive threat.
No water. No municipality. Water is a finite resource essential to all dimensions of municipal sustainability.
