A New Project Regarding Water Management Has Been Released in Manitoba

Water management is essential for different reasons, like conserving water and protecting the environment. The government of Manitoba has created a new “water management strategy,” which is quite a big step because the government has never made such a plan in approximately twenty years.

The plan will focus on maintaining water supply for current and future generations, protecting the groundwater’s quality and quantity, upgrading Indigenous inclusions in water management, protecting ecosystems and the biodiversity in Manitoba, and many more goals or purposes for such a plan.

The water plan needs the participation of all Manitobans, like the Expert Advisory Council, stakeholder engagement and citizens’ engagement via EngageMB Hon. Jeff Wharton, Minister of Environment, Climate and Parks, commented on this plan, saying, “We have heard from Manitobans that developing a priority-based strategy now will set the stage for thriving and resilient ecosystems, communities, and our economy, the water management strategy is the starting point for this critical work to address water security. Together, we will chart a path to meet the water needs and priorities of Manitoba’s communities and economy in a way that will be resilient and sustainable for generations to come.”

The Premier of Manitoba and the Minister of Environment, Climate and Parks added that all of the significant investments reaching $200 million from “the Conservation GROW and Wetlands GROW trust” and the impressive actions taken regarding “the Climate and Green Plan and the Sustainable Watersheds Act.” and the “strong foundation of water management,” have been the basis of this long-planned strategy.
