Watershed Planning and Advisory Councils
2012 | Map | Watershed Management

Watershed Planning and Advisory Councils (WPACs) are independent, non-profit organizations, designated by Alberta Environment and Parks to report on watershed health, lead collaborative planning, and facilitate education and stewardship activities. Within Alberta there are currently eleven WPACs representing the major river basins.

WPACs engage representatives of key stakeholders in the river basin area, including municipal, provincial and federal governments; industrial sectors; conservation groups; aboriginal communities; academia; and the public. In their work, they seek consensus on land and water resource management strategies that support the achievement of shared environmental, social, and economic outcomes for the watershed.
