Vancouver Island Coordinating Team promotes ‘Sustainable Drainage’


Three provincial Ministries and the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans have formed a Vancouver Island Coordinating Team (VICT) to facilitate a consistent, science-based approach to rainwater management on Vancouver Island. Implementation is keyed to use of the Water Balance Model for British Columbia.The objective in aligning efforts is to advance the state-of-the-practice in rainwater management on Vancouver Island.

The three Ministries on the Coordinating Team are Environment, Agriculture & Lands, and Community Services.

Since it was formed in December 2006, the VICT inter-agency steering group has expanded to include both local government and First Nations representation.
