Alberta’s Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Prevention Program
Aquatic invasive species are one of the biggest threats facing our fresh water resources, both economically and ecologically. Since Alberta is land locked, initial introductions through ballast water are a non-issue but we do have major concerns with secondary spread from one water body to another, via boat traffic. Mussels can live up to 30 days out of water. So the threat of a boat moving from an infested body of water to an Albertan lake is very feasible for introduction. Prevention of mussels, as well as other invasive aquatic species, is paramount. Please be aware of all aquatic invasive species!

There has been a change in plans for the distribution of the Emergency Preparedness Guides sponsored by ATCO, the M.D. and the Town of Fairview. Guides will now be distributed via direct delivery to Canada Post mailboxes in Fairview, Bluesky and Whitelaw. Anyone who does not receive their guide by the end of August are invited to pick one up at the M.D. office.
