NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT the AUMA 2014 General Assembly approve the 2014 Urban Municipal Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity Plan.
WHEREAS in 2009 AUMA members adopted a Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity (CEP) Plan with a goal to boost municipal capacity to implement CEP initiatives and contribute to the provincial Water for Life Strategy;
WHEREAS municipalities have made progress in improving water CEP so it is timely to build on these achievements and further advance capacity to protect this vital resource;
WHEREAS AUMA developed and communicated targets and actions and sought members’ input through an online discussion guide and workbook, webinars, Digest articles, and discussion at Mayors Caucuses, municipal-related events and the Water Network; and
WHEREAS at its June meeting, the AUMA Board of Directors considered members’ input and adopted the plan for consideration at the 2014 Convention.
As the Water Conservation, Efficiency and Productivity (CEP) Plan was developed for municipalities, it was not submitted to the province for a response.
