Making the Connection: Water and Land in Alberta

Water Matters has released a new report entitled "Making the Connection: Water and Land in Alberta".

In Alberta, 90,000 square kilometres of forests safeguard the upper reaches of the Athabasca and Saskatchewan River systems, and more than 100,000 square kilometres of wetlands store and filter water over 18 per cent of the province. Making the Connection: Water and Land in Alberta, a new report by Water Matters, concludes that the Alberta government must protect these and other watershed resources to prevent a water crisis in the province in the coming decades. This is the easiest, most effective and least costly way to maintain healthy ecosystems and the benefits they provide including clean, abundant drinking water, sustainable fisheries, and water for agriculture and other industrial uses. The best part? It will also save taxpayers billions of dollars over the long term.
