Lacombe, Alberta, July 24, 2014 –The State of the Environment (SOE) is an important tool for the County as it provides a snapshot of the current condition of the environment and the pressures that impact it. The report focuses on community perception, scientific data, current environmental legislation and environmental extension programs. It is a compilation of information gathered from various sources and provides us with a baseline from which we are able to undertake future environmental planning.
The very first SOE report for Lacombe County was released in the winter of 2013 with the promise of annual updates tracking changes. The 2014 Supplemental Report provides updated or supplemental information that is now available since the release of the initial SOE report in winter 2013. This document is a snapshot in time; it represents only the data that is available at the time of writing.
