WHEREAS water is our most important resource and should be managed prudently;
AND WHEREAS there is increased activity in the oil and gas activity in northeastern BC that is utilizing this vital resource for its hydraulic fracturing operations where alternative solutions need to be explored and implemented such as the use of effluent water:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the NCLGA be requested to petition the Province of BC to encourage oil and gas industries to enter into partnership agreements with either local or regional governments to construct effluent water facilities rather than utilizing aquifers for hydraulic fracturing purposes.
