An absorbent topsoil layer does more than help your plants and lawn grow well, it also helps you be water smart. Quality topsoil has many benefits including limiting runoff during wet-weather periods and reducing water need during dry-weather periods.

The City of Courtenay, City of Surrey and District of North Vancouver are sharing their pioneering experience with other municipal staff and designers. Developed by the Green Infrastructure Partnership, the ‘Topsoil Primer Set’ helps municipalities achieve water sustainability outcomes through implementation of green infrastructure practices.

Two guidance documents are available, one deals with Law and Policy, and the other provides Technical information.
