Province Promotes ‘Sustainable Drainage’ on Vancouver Island

Water balance model - outcomes (dec 2006)


Three provincial Ministries and the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) have formed a Vancouver Island Coordinating Team to facilitate a consistent, science-based approach to rainwater management on Vancouver Island.
