Water Management in the SEAWA Watershed

The SEAWA watershed lies within semi-arid southern Alberta. In this desert-like region, the proper management of water is critical for healthy ecosystems, for economic success, and to meet human consumption needs. It is therefore important to consider and understand the management of water at all levels: individual, municipal, provincial, and federal. By carefully managing our water resources, and understanding supply forecasts, we can all contribute to ensuring the future availability and good quality of water within our watershed. It is also important for individuals to understand the laws and regulations around waterbodies, whether they be on private or public land, and the reasons behind them.

With that in mind, SEAWA has invited speakers from the Government of Alberta, the University of Regina, the Bow River Basin Council, CE Analytic, and others, to give presentations at our educational forum. Presentations will include: water quality and quantity in southern Alberta, the effect of climate change on water supplies, the  regional Water Quality Management Framework, Alberta's Water Act, how municipalities can conserve and protect wetlands, and other subjects.
