You’re more connected to the river than you’d think. Everything outside your home drains into the North Saskatchewan River. The thing is, the river has a pretty restrictive diet — but it just can’t say no to what you feed it. Try these simple tips. The river will thank you.

About River For Life
River For Life is the City’s core initiative to address water quality improvement. Right now, our work is focused on reducing pollutants released by Edmontonians to stormwater sewers. Our ultimate goal is achieving net zero impact from human activities on the North Saskatchewan River.
Here’s what River For Life has planned over the next several years:
Installing more low impact development on City land
Developing and implementing stormwater quality improvement plans for industrial areas
Building stormwater quality improvement facilities to protect sensitive areas
Expanding education and awareness messaging to industrial, commercial and institutional land owners
