Inter-Governmental Partnership welcomes Town of Comox
Abbotsford – The Inter-Governmental Partnership (IGP) is pleased to welcome the Town of Comox as the second Comox Valley member of the Water Balance Model community of users, joining the City of Courtenay.
“The Town of Comox has embraced the Water Balance Model because it will help us implement Low Impact Development practices that achieve rainwater capture performance objectives,” states Glenn Westendorp, Public Works Superintendent. “The Water Balance Model gives the Town a tool to first analyze potential land development impacts, and then to evaluate the effectiveness of proposed alternative on-site solutions.”
“Membership in the Inter-Governmental Partnership will also help bring common awareness to the public that the Town's approach to rainwater/stormwater management is in alignment with the philosophy that is being implemented in other regions of British Columbia, and especially elsewhere on Vancouver Island.”
