The Mighty Peace Watershed Alliance (MPWA) is the official Watershed Planning and Advisory Council for the Peace/Slave River Basin. It is a multi-sector, not-for-profit society committed to planning for an ecologically healthy watershed while ensuring environmental, economic and social sustainability. The Alliance includes stakeholders and representatives of communities that use consensus, adaptive management, and innovation to understand and promote living within the watershed.

The open house is cancelled
Due to the COVID-19 virus and the importance to minimize risk to public health, the Wapiti River Water Management Plan Open House, scheduled on
March 19th, has been cancelled.
Options are being explored to offer a forum to discuss the plan and to ask questions.
While work is ongoing to get approval for the Wapiti River Management Plan, please note that Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) continues to ensure that prospective licensees and water licence applicants are proactively designing their plans with due consideration given to the Wapiti River Water Management Plan objectives. Water licence applicants within the basin are expected to make adjustments to their applications where necessary to meet the WRWMP water diversion limits.
We will be providing information on next steps, in the meantime, please visit Talk AEP to view the Plan, Plan summary documents, and provide input
to the online survey.
The plan has been officially released! Thanks to all the partners for their hard work. Implementation is already underway in order to protect drinking water.
Check out the project page for more info.
Our Integrated Watershed Management Plan is done! Please take a look at it and see how we can work together to better manage the watershed. Renewals will occur on a regular basis but for now the focus is on implementing the recommendations of the plan. Check out the plan here.
The State of the Watershed is a snapshot of the conditions in the Peace and Slave River Watersheds in Alberta. The Alliance is using the report as a baseline as we assess the effectiveness of actions taken and track changes in the watershed.
We hope that you will find the tool educational and useful. Please contact us with any questions or comments.
