View or download materials from January 13th Alberta’s Water Allocation Review: Who’s it “FITFIR”? Webinar
The Alberta Government is considering amendments to water allocation and water licence transfer systems in the province. This review is being driven by issues of overallocation of water in some areas of the province and the economic and environmental issues that overallocation has caused.
Jason Unger, Staff Counsel with the Environmental Law Centre, presented a summary review of the three reports that are informing the government’s review, as well as issues that arise from a “First in Time, First in Right” (FITFIR) system, such as whether the licence transfer system is equitable and whether transfers and FITFIR adequately address environmental and economic concerns.
The slides and audio recording from this webinar are now available on the ELC website.
