The Environment Agency has a duty to secure the proper use of water resources in England and Wales. We monitor water in the environment, and issue 'abstraction licences' to regulate who can take water from the environment. These specify the amount of water someone can take from a location over a period of time. We also have a long term strategy for Water Resources that looks 25 years ahead and considers the needs of both the environment and society.
DEFRA is responsible for all aspects of water policy in England, including water supply and resources, and the regulatory systems for the water environment and the water industry. These include: drinking water quality,
the quality of water in rivers, lakes and estuaries, coastal and marine waters, sewage treatment, and reservoir safety.
The Council has one simple mission: To encourage and facilitate environmentally responsible economic growth. Through the Council, Governors work collectively to ensure that the entire Great Lakes region is both economically sound and environmentally conscious in addressing today's problems and tomorrow's challenges.
This website is dedicated to bring Canadians important information resouces and publications about our air, climate, freshwater, health, land, oceans, pollution, sustainable development, and weather.
Sustainable Development also means development that includes all our people, that draws on the talents and on the collective wisdom we have inherited from our ancestors. When these three elements are in balance, the protection of our land, economic development and the full participation of our people, then I believe economic development can be sustainable.
