Metro Vancouver Regional Board amended 2012 Budget to fund the Water Balance Model Express


Value of Water Balance Model recognized by Regional Board

On October 19, 2011 the Metro Vancouver Regional Board held a Special Meeting regarding the Draft 2012 Budget. An on-table item was the funding request from the Partnership for Water Sustainability in BC for co-funding in the amount of $50,000 for the Water Balance Model. Approval required an amendment to the 2012 Draft Budget.

“Therefore, the Board approved a $50,000 contribution to co-fund the development of the Water Balance Model and directed staff to prepare the necessary budget documents and bylaws.”
