Bulk Water Exports

Given that Canada and the United States share interconnected water systems, there is pressure to send water to serve drought-prone areas in the U.S. through bulk water exports. These projects are tremendously costly, require vast amounts of energy, and pose great threats to watersheds. Bulk water exports and diversions would leave Canada’s water vulnerable to environmental depletion and to international trade challenges that could permanently open the floodgates to parched U.S. states.
