2005 workshop series set the scene for rainwater harvesting in British Columbia



Drawing on the experience of two international experts, workshops held in Vancouver and in Victoria in 2005 connected the dots between WHY harvest rainwater and HOW to cost-effectively implement rainwater collection, storage, treatment and delivery systems.  The two workshops were part of a series of cross-Canada events.

The workshops were organized by a partnership comprising the British Columbia Water & Waste Association (BCWWA), Canada Mortgage & Housing Corporation (CMHC), Province of BC, Capital Regional District and Canadian Water Resources Association (CWRA). The two events were undertaken within the context of the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia, which is enabling the Province to collaborate with local government and others to advance a shared vision for water stewardship and sustainable communities.
