Groups and individuals who manage Alberta’s watersheds, or those affected by decisions around watershed management, need to have a voice in planning and decisions that may have an impact on water quality or quantity, says the Alberta Water Council.

Recommendations for a Watershed Management Planning Framework for Alberta, a report released yesterday, provides advice for planning a framework that will integrate shared governance and a watershed approach with existing policies and legislation-a key goal of Alberta’s provincial water strategy, Water for Life.

The report also identifies a number of key components of watershed management planning, and provides guidance on how stakeholders can work together under a shared governance structure to better plan and implement watershed management plans.
