Who is the Lesser Slave Watershed Council?

The Lesser Slave Watershed Council (LSWC) is a nonprofit, charitable organization whose mission is: to be a proactive organization working towards long term economic, social and environmental sustainability of the Lesser Slave watershed and its citizens. The LSWC is guided by a board of directors elected by members within the watershed.

What does the LSWC do?

  • Report on the health of the Lesser watershed through State of the Watershed reporting, water quality monitoring and other technical projects. 
  • Provide watershed management recommendations to decision makers, including the Government of Alberta, municipalities, industry and other stakeholders through the development and implementation of an integrated watershed management plan for the basin. 
  • Promote watershed stewardship through diverse education and outreach programs for people of all ages. 
  • Work with the Government of Alberta to deliver Water for Life goals.
