Fredericton – The Government of New Brunswick has invited the public, stakeholders and First Nations to participate in a discussion about water, how it’s managed and protected.

The paper, entitled Working Together to Build a Water Strategy for New Brunswick, seeks input on the following questions:
-When you think about water in general, what comes to mind as being most important?
-What are your biggest concerns related to water in New Brunswick?
-What do you feel should be the water-related priority areas for government?
-Do the vision, guiding principles and goals capture what’s important to you?
-What action items would you like to see included in a water strategy for the province?

Open houses will be held in communities across the province from March 14-23, 2016, the N.B. government said in a news release.

The public comment period will close on April 29, 2016. Following this date, a “What We Heard” document will be prepared and made available to the public on the Department of Environment and Local Government’s website. The process of drafting a water strategy will then begin.
