CAVI draws attention to need for “integrated watershed management” in its Water Act Modernization Submission
The Ministry of Environment received almost 1000 written submissions about Water Act Modernization. One of the stakeholders responding to the call for submissions was Convening for Action on Vancouver Island, known as CAVI.
“The WAM Discussion Paper appears to miss the opportunity for an integrated watershed management approach, rather focussing on water management and allocation. CAVI’s experience suggests that the integration of land use and water management at the regional or local level is germane to successfully reforming the Water Act,” wrote John Finnie, CAVI Chair.
