Living Water Smart is a blueprint for cultural, environmental, industrial, community and agricultural change that will help safeguard the province’s water resources. Released by Environment Minister Barry Penner in June 2008, the plan commits to new actions and builds on existing efforts to protect and keep B.C.’s water healthy and secure. “Living Water Smart: British Columbia’s Water Plan lays out the vision and the steps needed to protect our rivers, lakes, streams and watersheds. This plan will make B.C. a leader in water stewardship,” said Minister Penner.
