    The Manitoba government is releasing its initial Water Strategy Action Plan. This action plan is a focused guide to specific and time-bound actions that government is taking to transform the Water Management Strategy’s focus areas and strategic objectives into concrete actions.

    We released our comprehensive Water Management Strategy on November 8, 2022, which sets the direction for Manitoba’s water future and provides a framework to conserve and protect the environment, enhance resiliency, improve water quality and availability, enhance engagement and Indigenous inclusion in water management, and foster economic development opportunities. The initial Water Strategy Action Plan is a complement to the Water Management Strategy, providing a suite of new water projects, programming and initiatives that Manitoba has launched since the release of the Water Management Strategy and will initiate in fiscal year 2023-24.

    The initial Water Strategy Action Plan builds on extensive input from Manitobans, including the 2021 advice and recommendations from the Expert Advisory Council, additional citizen engagement through EngageMB, and further stakeholder engagement. The investments announced in the initial Water Action Plan reflect this feedback, and are a critical first step towards meeting the water needs of Manitobans in a resilient and sustainable way, while protecting our water resources and ecosystems.

    The action plan is iterative and will be updated regularly to reflect work completed and to provide clarity on next steps and future initiatives. Manitoba is committed to providing transparent and regular progress reports, beginning with an initial progress report within one year of the release of the initial action plan.

    This initial Water Strategy Action Plan signifies a continued commitment to build Manitoba’s water future, and is only the beginning of this work. This is just the first action plan and there will be more to come.

    You can visit https://manitoba.ca/sd/water/index.html to learn more.

    Thanks to all of you who provided your input and feedback as we developed the initial Water Strategy Action Plan.

    Hello,

    Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) is proposing amendments to the Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations (WSER). You are receiving this email from because we understand that your wastewater system is subject to the WSER. As such, we are seeking your input on the proposed amendments.

    We have published the proposed Regulations Amending the Wastewater Systems Effluent Regulations (proposed amendments) in the Canada Gazette I. We are initiating a 60-day public consultation period. We invite you to review the proposed amendments and share any feedback and perspectives by July 26, 2023.

    Proposed Amendments

    The proposed amendments would allow new applications for extensions to upgrade wastewater systems (transitional authorizations). They would also expand temporary bypass authorizations for maintenance work at the treatment plant to include releases from the sewer system and would set conditions based on risk to the environment. ECCC is also proposing to amend administrative provisions to provide greater clarity and resolve implementation issues.

    We have created factsheets that explain through the proposed changes to the Regulations, which are available on our webpage.

    Feedback and Information Sessions

    To provide your comments on the proposed amended regulations, please use the commenting boxes provided on the Canada Gazette webpage and if you have comments on a specific section, please note it. You can comment on behalf of an organization, individually, or anonymously, and your comments will be publicly available to increase transparency and accountability. For more information on how to comment, please visit our site Comment on proposed regulations.

    We will be hosting public information sessions to discuss the proposed amendments, answer questions and receive feedback. To register for a virtual information session, please visit our webpage using the following link: Consultations on wastewater - Canada.ca.

    Please feel free to forward to others that may be interested in participating and providing input.

    Comments collected during the consultation phase will inform the final amended regulations.

    Should you have any questions during the consultation process, please contact us.

    Regards,
