Mighty Peace Watershed Alliance seeking feedback on Integrated Watershed Management Plan

October 4, 2017

While integrated watershed management planning can’t prevent all costs of natural disasters, weather events, or infrastructure failure, it can proactively identify issues and suggest solutions to protect values of concern.  This is why the Mighty Peace Watershed Alliance (MPWA) has been busy building an Integrated Watershed Management Plan for the Peace and Slave Watersheds in Alberta.

The draft plan has now been released and the MPWA is looking for feedback from the following communities that are part of the Peace and Slave watersheds:

  • Grande Cache
  • Grande Prairie
  • Wembley
  • Beaverlodge
  • Hythe
  • La Glace
  • Sexsmith
  • Debolt
  • Fox Creek
  • Valleyview
  • Wanham
  • Spirit River
  • Rycroft
  • Falher
  • McLennan
  • Nampa
  • Peace River
  • Fairview
  • Hines Creek
  • Berwyn
  • Grimshaw
  • Manning
  • Red Earth
  • Wabasca
  • Fort Vermilion
  • La Crete
  • Fort Chipewyan

Visit the MPWA website to view the draft watershed management plan, as well as the summary brochure, video, and working group reports.  The MPWA is accepting feedback on the plan until November 15, 2017. Contact them at 780-324-3355, mpwa.coordinator@telus.net, or 205 First Street East, McLennan, Alberta.
