The City of Saskatoon is engaging with subject matter experts with unique knowledge about water conservation and with water consumers (including Saskatoon residents, businesses and organizations) to evaluate and prioritize possible water conservation initiatives for our community. Your input will help inform development of a water conservation strategy.
We want to talk about:
- What are some barriers to participating in water conservation programming that we need to address?
- What types of water conservation programs or initiatives would you participate in?
- Which types of water conservation programs or initiatives would not work for you?
- How can we make water conservation programs accessible to everyone?
|Phase 1: Involve
Meetings with subject matter experts and workshops with key stakeholder groups to identify barriers to participation and implementation of water conservation initiatives.
|Phase 2: Consult/Involve
May to July 2020
|Meetings with key stakeholder groups and workshop/survey with water consumers to identify which water conservation programs are preferred.|
|Phase 3: Consult
|Opportunity will be provided for engagement participants to review What We Heard and learn how these results informed the draft Water Conservation Strategy.|
|Phase 4: Reporting
|The Water Conservation Strategy will be presented to City Council for consideration.|
|Phase 5: Implementation
To be determined
|If approved, additional engagement opportunities will inform implementation planning for each of the recommended water conservation programs in the Water Conservation Strategy.|
What we’ve heard so far
Over the last year, we have researched water conservation strategies and programs that are working well in other Canadian cities. We are still early in the engagement process, but we look forward to sharing what we have learned so far and working with you to determine which programs or initiatives could work in Saskatoon and how we might improve them to address our needs locally.
If you have questions about water conservation or engagement opportunities, please email us or call 306-986-9784.
