Encourage Urban Governments to Join Watershed Authorities

Year: 2012


Whereas a sustainable supply of water is necessary for the present and future needs of Saskatchewan; and Whereas water knows no boundaries and protection of water requires multi-level and inter jurisdictional coordination and management; and Whereas urban governments are the operators and owners of waterworks and are responsible for supplying safe drinking water and treating wastewater as prescribed by environmental legislation; and Whereas many urban governments are facing critical issues with respect to predictable quantity and quality of water resources; and Whereas local watershed groups lead, develop and promote the importance of source water protection and encourage all stakeholders to work collaboratively to ensure long-term availability of water for Saskatchewan people; Therefore be it resolved that the SUMA encourage all urban governments to join their local watershed groups.
