AWA News Release: Athabasca River at Risk

February 9, 2010

Despite good progress by a multi-stakeholder group in understanding issues around Athabasca River water withdrawals, AWA is concerned there will still not be protective water rules for low winter flows.

When citizens and their representatives in government fail to place a high value on wilderness as a resource in itself, then its disappearance – especially in reasonably accessible locations – is swift and certain.
