In this webinar, resource policy analyst Ben Parfitt will explore some of the complex issues surrounding projected increases in industrial water use in northeast B.C. and how the management and oversight of water use may be impacted by proposed changes to provincial water legislation. He will demonstrate projected water use increases for the province under an unfolding natural gas sector, and the major implications for how water use is tracked, and how pre-development planning may need to change in order to ensure watershed integrity. James Tate, a lawyer specializing in Aboriginal law, will then discuss some of his work with Fort Nelson First Nation and the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations District Water Manager related to the authorization of long-term water licences for fracking purposes in the Fort Nelson territory.
