  • David R. Percy

Abstract

The author studies the law in Alberta regarding the use of water resources. The right to divert surface water from its course or to detain its natural flow for consumptive or other purposes is discussed. The author contends that the present Alberta Water Resources Act does not develop maximum beneficial use of Alberta's water resources.
