13.3. Each hydrologic unit must be the subject of planning so as to ensure conservation of the water resource and the environments associated with it.
For that purpose, a watershed body or a regional advisory panel created or designated under subparagraph 3 or 4 of the first paragraph of section 14 must develop a water master plan or an integrated management plan for all or part of the St. Lawrence.
Once such a plan has been developed, government departments and bodies, metropolitan communities, municipalities and Native communities represented by their band council must take it into consideration in exercising their powers and duties.
