We help to maintain, improve and monitor the health of
Wabamun Lake.

 

Wabamun Lake is located in central Alberta about 60 km west of the city of Edmonton. The Wabamun Watershed Management Council (WWMC) is a not-for-profit society that represents a cross-section of Wabamun Lake stakeholders who are committed to maintaining and improving the health of the lake and its watershed.

 

We are the Wabamun Watershed Management Council

Note: The Wabamun Watershed Management Council (WWMC) is a separate organization from the Wabamun Area Stewardship Association (WASA). The WWMC was formed in 2006 as the result of a recommendation made in the 2004 Schindler Report (PDF) on the health and viability of Wabamun Lake, specifically the creation of a permanent citizens’ panel to work cooperatively with stakeholders to protect the health of the lake. WASA was formed in October of 2018 to oppose the Ridge Water Resort development. The WWMC is not directly involved in WASA’s activities.

Wabamun Lake is located in central Alberta about 60 km west of the city of Edmonton. The Wabamun Watershed Management Council (WWMC) is a not-for-profit society that represents a cross-section of Wabamun Lake stakeholders who are committed to maintaining and improving the health of the lake and its watershed.

The council works with governments, organizations, businesses and individuals to inform and educate stakeholders about the biology of the lake and the issues affecting the watershed and lake. It sponsors and coordinates programs and activities that gather information about the biology and use of the watershed and that improve the health and viability of the lake.

The WWMC meets once a month, usually on the third Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Meetings are generally held at the Alberta Environment and Parks office in Spruce Grove. Go to the What's New page for specific information about the next meeting.

We are also on Facebook where you can join our group, post information and engage in conversations. You can also follow us on Twitter.
