Edmonton's Healthy River Strategy: Pursuing a Vision of Zero Pollutant Discharge

Description:The North Saskatchewan River (NSR) is a primary source of Edmonton's drinking water, as well as a recipient of urban runoff, treated wastewater discharge, and combined sewer overflows from the City. The pollutant loading to the river is recognized as an important issue that needs to be addressed to facilitate continued growth and ensure long-term watershed health. Edmonton`s environmental strategic plan, The Way We Green, identifies a number of strategic policy directions aimed at long-term protection of the water quality of the North Saskatchewan Watershed. This information is being used to develop an approach that effectively incorporates existing strategies and is in alignment with regional watershed protection initiatives.
