What's New

Three reports released in 2017!

On October 23, 2017, the AWC released its fourth report on water conservation, efficiency and productivity (CEP), Looking Back: Evaluating Sector Improvements in Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity. Following on the footsteps of three previous AWC reports on CEP, this report documents improvements in water CEP by Alberta's seven major water-using sectors and evaluates the overall CEP process led by the AWC since 2006. For more information on the work of all four CEP project teams, please visit the CEP page.

In September 2017 the AWC released its latest report, Recommendations to Improve Lake Watershed Management in Alberta. The report documents the current state of lake watershed management in the province and presents 12 recommendations for a coordinated approach to lake watershed management. For more information on this work, please visit the Lake Management Project Team page.

Finally, in May 2017 the AWC released its Review of Water for Life Implementation Progress: 2012-2015, the latest in a series of five implementation reviews since 2004. For more information on this review and previous ones, please visit the Water for Life Implementation Review Committee page.

New work for the AWC

At its October 2017 board meeting, the AWC selected two new potential projects on source water protection and multi-year drought resiliency. Working groups will be refining both project ideas and developing terms of reference over the next few months. Check back in early 2018 for more information on these!
