REPORTS

Source Water Protection - Request from the Red Deer River Municipal Users Group

 

Moved by Councillor Michael Dawe, seconded by Councillor Dianne Wyntjes

 

Resolved that Council of The City of Red Deer having considered the report from Environmental Services dated January 7, 2019 re:  Source Water Protection – Request from the Red Deer River Municipal Users Group hereby adopts the Charter for Protecting Source Water Quality in the Red Deer River Watershed as follows:

 

Whereas, the United Nations General Assembly: “Recognizes the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights” (28 July 2010, Resolution 64/292)

 

And Whereas, the Government of Canada has stated:  “Pollution of the water resources of Canada is a significant and rapidly increasing threat to the health, well-being and prosperity of the people of Canada and to the quality of the Canadian environment at large and as a result it has become a matter of urgent national concern that measures be taken to provide for water quality management in those areas of Canada most critically affected”. (Canada Water Act, R.S.C., 195, c. C-11)

 

And Whereas, the Province of Alberta has stated:  “Water is not only a resource, it is a life source.  We all share the responsibility to ensure a healthy, secure and sustainable water supply for our communities, environment and economy – our quality of life depends on it.  The Government of Alberta’s renewed Water for Life strategy has three main goals:  Safe, secure drinking water; Healthy aquatic ecosystems; and Reliable, quality water supplies for a sustainable economy”.  (Water for Life:  Alberta’s strategy for sustainability 2003)

 

And Whereas, the Red Deer River Municipal Users Group (RDRMUG) recognizes the importance of protecting all Central Alberta water resources for the future well-being of communities, and the businesses and residents therein, along with maintaining a healthy environment, including aquatic and riparian ecosystems throughout our watershed.  An ensuing goal of RDRMUG is to ensure, by means of education, promotion and example, the protection of source water quality by all municipalities through their adoption of meaningful policies and implementation of relevant actions.

 

Therefore, Council of The City of Red Deer hereby:

1.         Endorses and supports the following main goals of the Government of Alberta’s renewed Water for Life Strategy:

a.         Safe, secure drinking water,

b.         Healthy aquatic ecosystems, and

c.         Reliable, quality water supplies for a sustainable economy.

 

2.         Commits to continue to implement initiatives that protect source water quality in the Red Deer River Watershed.

 

IN FAVOUR:           Mayor Tara Veer, Councillor Buck Buchanan, Councillor Michael Dawe, Councillor Tanya Handley, Councillor Vesna Higham, Councillor Ken Johnston, Councillor Lawrence Lee, Councillor Frank Wong, Councillor Dianne Wyntjes
