Water is an essential part of agriculture. Nova Scotia farmers are constantly dealing with water supply, quality, drainage and storage issues. Flooding rivers or droughty summers, water is constantly on NS farmers’ minds. This Water Resources site was developed to provide farmers with a library of resources they may need to address water related issues, concerns or questions. Please take a look around the site and let us know if there is any information or resources you could not find.
“We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.”
The site was developed as part of a larger project jointly funded by NS Department of Agriculture and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s NS Water Supply Expansion Program, NS Federation of Agriculture and NS Agricultural College (now Dalhousie’s Agricultural Campus).
