INVESTMENT! ALBERTA’S FUTURE WATER WARS
ARE YOU IN NEED OF AN EXCELLENT WATER SUPPLY?
To facilitate maximum development opportunities the following properties are still zoned agriculture and form one continuous block of land. You are limited to your imagination. These are highly develop-able lands and rezoning opportunities abound.
Former premier of Alberta, Peter Lougheed, called on Albertans to treasure water “I believe that water is more important than oil”.
One of the wells on Kleskun Springs produces approximately 1500 cubic meters of water daily. The cost of water can range from $3 to $10 a cubic meter.
ALBERTA’S FUTURE WATER WARS
As Joseph Doucet, dean at the Alberta School of Business and a member of the Minister’s Advisory Group on Water, argues in a 2007 report, “In the management of Alberta’s economy, water should be viewed as being every bit as important as oil.”
As Alberta contemplates a future with water pricing and possibly water markets, some say it’s not the cost per liter that matters, but the cost of water that’s rendered unusable.
Water has always been ubiquitous in Alberta. But as many point out, we’re reaching the end of water abundance and could be entering a period of water scarcity. And that’s where things get interesting. ……purchased licenses granting it access to 2.47 billion liters of water. Cost? A stunning $15 million.
But today’s limitation …… could soon spread, and draw battle lines across the province tomorrow.
Some believe a water-scarce world could become Alberta’s reality faster than expected – and that we need to find answers quickly.
Dr. David Schindler, an ecology professor at the University of Alberta, says future droughts will likely be far worse than the ones that turned the prairies into a dust bowl in the 1930s.
He says Alberta’s booming economy and rapid growth have made it the province most vulnerable to looming water shortages.
Their study indicates that water levels in the rivers of Alberta have declined 20 to 84 per cent in the last 100 years.
If climate reverts back to drier conditions and global warming continues, parts of the Prairies that are already dry will probably begin to resemble the near-desert conditions in the U.S. West.
