Publication—In Water we Trust: Engaging Albertans in Restoration and Maintenance of Environmental Flows

The Environmental Law Centre has made available for download their report "In Water we Trust: Engaging Albertans in Restoration and Maintenance of Environmental Flows":

Should Alberta adopt policies that allow for 3rd party participation in instream flow protection?  Are water trust organizations a part of the answer to instream flow needs in over-allocated basins?  The Environmental Law Centre’s report In Water we Trust:  Engaging Albertans in Restoration and Maintenance of Environmental Flows seeks to answer these questions.

In Water we Trust recommends that Alberta bolster its scientific assessment of environmental impacts during water allocation, renewal and transfer decisions and broaden its approach to designating environmental flows (and issuing WCO licences).  In this way Albertans will be able to directly participate in flow restoration.
