Register for "Forum on Sustainable Rainwater Management" on March 28, 2012 at Duncan Campus of Vancouver Island University


On March 28, the Cowichan Valley is the host region for the 2nd Vancouver Island Water Balance Model Forum.  The venue for the Forum is the theatre at the Duncan campus of Vancouver Island University, a LEED facility.


Water Balance Methodology

The water balance methodology accounts for all the rainfall-days in a year. The methodology links rain that falls on a site…to the runoff leaving the site…to the flow in a stream.

This methodology is a foundation block for those tasked with developing a Master Drainage Plan, an Integrated Stormwater Management Plan (ISMP), the Rainwater Management Component of a Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP), or a Watershed Blueprint.

Participants will learn WHY and HOW the “Water Balance Methodology” holds the key to protecting stream health.


Forum Structure

The 4-hour Forum is structured in a way that is designed to facilitate inter-active knowledge-transfer. At the start of each hour, context presentations by  those who are leading changes in practice will inform “sharing and learning” in a town-hall format.
