URBAN RESOURCES

  • Xeriscaping

Derived from the Greek word xeros, meaning dry, when combined with landscape it means water efficient landscape design and practice. This gardening strategy allows the home or business owner to create and maintain a varied and colorful landscape using drought tolerant plants.

  • Water Conservation

Water shortages in southern Alberta and elsewhere have prompted many municipalities to consider the wise and efficient use of water. Understanding how the water resource is viewed and how it is used by communities in the Milk River watershed is one of the goals of the MRWCC.
