We looked into Alberta's water supply. Our three main focusses
were quantity, quality and use. Are we going to have enough?
Is it clean and safe? And how do we use or abuse it?
In week one, we visit Stettler, Alberta...a town still recovering
from the drought of 2002. We look into the provincial moratorium
on water licences...and we'll also do a water taste test.

Edmonton is getting high marks for it's water quality, but
is the source of that water in danger? Reporter Gareth Hampshire
takes us to Peace River. Residents there are worried about
how oil sands development will affect their water supply in
the future. Albertans love to golf! How is our recreation
affecting water supplies. And reporter Erin Collins will look
at farm irrigation. Is that sustainable?
Blueprint Alberta: H2O Episode 2 [mp3 file: runs 38:00]
We've been looking at Alberta's water supply...and our stewardship
of it. Are we running out? This week, we look at the water
guzzler in your home and it's not the toilet. We'll look at
water as a commodity and how it might be traded in the future.
And we'll wrap up the series looking at what we all can do
to conserve water.
