Creating a Picture of Alberta's Water Future
Troy Media, September 7, 2014 - Alberta relies on water like no other province in the country. In fact, Alberta's water use accounts for two-thirds of Canada's entire use, and our agricultural products - which account for 60 to 70 per cent of Alberta's water use - make up one-third of the country's agricultural exports. Fully half of the province's gross domestic product is predicated on water availability. To minimize the risk attached to such water dependency, important work is quietly underway to help Alberta plan for future uncertainties.
