CHEVELDAYOFF TO PRESENT AT INTERNATIONAL WATER CONFERENCE

Released on October 16, 2013

Minister responsible for the Water Security Agency Ken Cheveldayoff will present the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan at the WATEC 2013 exhibition and conference in Tel Aviv, Israel on October 23.
 
“It’s a privilege for our government to showcase Saskatchewan’s 25 year Water Security Plan on an international stage,” Cheveldayoff said.  “Water security is integral to the growth of our province and well being of our citizens and while some of the issues we face are unique, many of the concerns around water security are shared across the world.  This conference is a great opportunity to share Saskatchewan’s story and also see what sustainable water infrastructure and technology solutions other areas of the world are using.”

Israeli Ambassador to Canada Miriam Ziv invited Minister Cheveldayoff to attend the WATEC conference and interact with world experts on water and share Saskatchewan’s approach to water management following her visit to Saskatchewan last year.  After hearing about the creation of the 25 year Water Security Plan and the Water Security agency, she felt Saskatchewan could contribute in a positive way to the conference.
 
The WATEC 2013 conference runs from October 22-24, and focuses on how new technologies in water management can help countries around the world with water management issues.  This includes panel discussions and presentations on irrigation technology, regional water co-operation and ways to approach financing water technology.
  
“As part of the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan, we committed to looking for innovative solutions to better use technology and this conference will help us see what the rest of the world is working on and enable us to bring ideas back to Saskatchewan,” Cheveldayoff said.

The Water Security Agency was created to lead implementation of the 25 Year Saskatchewan Water Security Plan.  It will improve water management capacity and service to individuals, businesses and communities across Saskatchewan.  This new agency brings together, for the first time, all of the major responsibilities related to water quality and quantity.
