Alberta to hold public forums on water use

EDMONTON — Albertans wanting to have their say on water and other topics related to it are getting their chance this month.

Starting on Feb.19, the province is scheduled to hold public forums in 20 communities.

Environment Minister Diana McQueen says participants can discuss any topic relating to water, including hydraulic fracturing, usage, lakes and waste water systems.

Albertans can also fill out online opinion surveys between Feb. 11 and March 29.

McQueen expects a strong response — she noted that during recent consultations on the South Saskatchewan Regional Plan, water was the No. 1 topic of interest.

There will also be meetings with stakeholders and with First Nations and Metis representatives.
