  • 12. MODERATE progress:• Enforceableregulations toprotect non-salinegroundwaterresources• Air emission limitsmatching WHO AirQuality Guidelines
  • 13. MODERATE progress:• Require best-availabletechnology foremissions reduction• Expand airmonitoring to meetscientific needs
  • 14. MODERATE progress:• Fund a regionalmonitoring networkfor groundwaterlevels andgroundwater qualityindicators
  • 15. LIMITED progress:• Requireestablishment ofbiodiversity offsets• Limit oilsandsdevelopment to amaximum of 5% ofany Albertaplanning region
  • 16. LIMITED progress:• Develop anew, transparentand risk-aversemine securityprogram• Follow AlbertaCaribou Committeerecommendationson ranges
  • 17. LIMITED progress:• Water managementplan with EBF forthe lowerAthabasca River• Measure and mapgroundwater andsurface/groundwater interactions

  • 19. LIMITED progress:• Commit to a GHGemissions reductiontarget consistentwith a fair Albertacontribution• Implement anescalating CO2eemission price
  • 20. LIMITED progress:• Mandate the use ofcarbon capture andstorage (CCS)technology• Replace the RegionalAquatics MonitoringProgram with ascientifically robustmonitoring system
