TransCanada recognizes water and water systems as fundamental components of the ecosystems where we operate. The protection of our water resources is of the utmost importance to both the environment and our business.
TransCanada has a responsible relationship with water on many levels.
In accordance with all applicable regulatory requirements and environmental assessment processes, TransCanada identifies and characterizes water-related issues in the planning and permitting stages of asset development.
When a potential exists for our proposed facilities or infrastructure to interact with natural water resources, evaluations are conducted to understand the full nature and extent of the interactions. Specific plans are developed and implemented to ensure all resources are protected to maintain their natural function within the environment.
Water is responsibly managed by our operations through a comprehensive environmental management program.
