Building Water Resilience: Sustainably managing our finite resource

In the late 1990s, the Town of Okotoks, Alberta made the pioneering decision to live within the limited carrying capacity of the Sheep River Watershed (approximately 30,000 people). Over the past 15 years, while experiencing a rapid 41% population growth, the Town has remained within its allocated licensed water capacity.

During this #CWNSYP webinar, you will explore:

  • most successful water conservation programs to date

  • current challenges

  • future ideas and concepts
