25 Year Water Security Plan


Water is a public resource and managing water is a provincial responsibility. Managing a resource of this importance requires a long-term vision and a well-planned series of actions. Many water management initiatives, such as implementing source water protection or developing new infrastructure, take years to plan and complete.

Even though we cannot foresee all actions that may be necessary in the future, maintaining a 25-year planning horizon that projects our future water demands and stresses provides the timeframe required for long-term water management initiatives and ensures consideration of future generations.
