The Water Management Framework for the Industrial Heartland and Capital Region presents a collaborative, cumulative effects management approach to protect the reach of the North Saskatchewan River, from Devon to Pakan, which is directly impacted by municipal and industrial effluent discharge. The Water Management framework implementation steering committee (steering committee) – of which NCIA is a member of – is implementing the framework’s vision, strategic objectives and guiding principles to develop an integrated water management system for the region.
The steering committee is chaired by Alberta environment and sustainable resource development. Membership includes representatives from the government of Alberta, municipal governments, industry and a watershed planning and advisory council. The steering committee used additional sub-committees to explore science, engineering, communications, and other topics.
