There were favourable results from the Lacombe County’s 2018 Environmental Report. Every five years the Lacombe County commits to a full-scale report and the last full-scale report was in 2013.

There were no major causes for concern says Jennifer Berry, Environmental Coordinator for Lacombe County.

“There’s been a lot of changes within our organization in the last five years. We’ve developed a lot of programs and done a lot of things here at the county. On a scientific environmental level, they just don’t release documents that often and that’s partly because there hasn’t been any huge changes.”

Despite a good report, Berry explained that the County is always working hard on maintaining and improving the environment.

“We’re always working on all sorts of different things like we have to deal with wetland conservation at all times and we have environmental improvement that we do every year. We have our ALUS project. We have those things that are always ongoing and any sort of new initiatives we try to do as well.”

With this ongoing work and management, it seems the County will continue to perform well for years to come.
