" Peter Lougheed has said that in the future, water will be more important to Albertans than oil and gas. Since the closing of the South Saskatchewan River Basin to new water licenses in the summer of 2006, this scenario is becoming real for many Albertans. Increasing public attention on water issues internationally is driving increasing government involvement in all aspects of water and land management, which is already impacting economic and social development in our Province. Alberta WaterSMART is helping to drive solutions to these issues through an innovative not-for-profit business model that is making a difference in water management here at home, and increasingly abroad." - Kim Sturgess
