Alberta Water Council: Call for Members for New Team

Initiative: 
Team to Identify Criteria for Areas of Significance
Application Deadline: 
11 Jun 2009 (All day)

On June 4, the AB Water Council approved the launch of a Project Team – likely the only new one for the rest of 2009-2010, given budget constraints. AEN is being asked to nominate by this Friday June 12 a rep to a working group in June, and by end of June to nominate a rep (not necessarily the same person) to the Project Team from July to March 2010.

If you’re interested in representing AEN on the working group or project Team, please reply to Meghan meghan [at] water-matters [dot] org by noon Thursday June 11.

Project Focus

Team is to Identify Criteria for Areas of Significance for maintenance of aquatic ecosystem health. This was identified as a high priority step towards a broader source water protection/sensitive areas protection strategy by the Healthy Aquatic Ecosystem Team in their March 2009 report. Alberta Environment strongly supported a multi-stakeholder team moving forward on this topic. Read more »
