Saskatchewan environment minister Cheveldayoff to explain province’s water plan at conference in Israel

Saskatchewan environment minister Ken Cheveldayoff heads to Israel next week to present the province’s 25-year plan for water security.

The minister said a visit last spring by Israel’s ambassador to Canada, Miriam Ziv, prompted the invitation to WATEC 2013 in Tel Aviv.

The conference focuses on new technologies in water management.

“Some of it is leading edge, it is world class and we’d be happy to talk about both the concerns we face here in Saskatchewan and how we address them,” Cheveldayoff said of the province’s plan.

He said people are interested in how Saskatchewan works with other provinces and across the border with North Dakota to manage water.

“I think at worldwide conferences like this they like case studies. That’s what I’m going to be able to present.”

The minister also said he will be able to find out what technologies other countries are using and what might work in Saskatchewan.
