To protect drinking water in Alberta, we need your input!

This survey targets individuals who rely on a private source of drinking water (i.e., well, dug-out, other) on their property. The Alberta Water Council is a not-for-profit, multi-stakeholder organization that researches and develops solutions to water challenges in the province. We would like to learn about your drinking water source and how you take care of it.

We have created a team to provide guidance for protecting public, private, and individual drinking water sources. The results gathered from this survey would inform guidance on source water protection. By participating in this survey, you would be helping the team identify:

  • drinking water risks and protection measures
  • successes, barriers, and lessons learned
  • best management practices

The guidance document will be used by the Government of Alberta and other partners to improve efforts to protect drinking water sources. For more information about this project, go to contact

Complete the survey here by September 14, 2018. Depending on your answers, it should not take more than 15 minutes to fill out. Enter your name and contact information (optional) in a prize draw to be a lucky winner of a gift card!
