Henry Kroeger's experience as a farmer in Alberta's dryland made him a champion of the province's water resources. His devotion to that cause resulted in the formation of the Alberta Water Resources Commission with his serving as its chairman from 1983 until his death in 1987. In recognition of his contributions to water management, a regional water commission in the Chinook constituency he served was named in his honor in March of 1988. The commission will supply water services to the towns of Hanna and Oyen, the villages of Youngstown and Cereal, and Special Areas 2, 3, and 4. Mr. Kroeger served as an MLA from 1975 through 1987.
