Virtually all the water that sustains communities, ecosystems and the economy of prairie Canada comes from this narrow strip of land along the Continental Divide. For all its importance, however, water management decisions have ignored the land’s health and focused almost exclusively on building dams. The result, as the author points out, is that the Bow River’s annual flows have decreased by more than a tenth, even while spring floods become more frequent and destructive.

The solutions to prairie Canada’s water challenges lie in healing the wounded landscapes of our headwaters.
