Join Fresh Water Alliance on October 18th for Water Sustainability and the City Forum.  This free event will bring together urban water professionals from across British Columbia in order to explore tools and strategies to address environmental and management challenges in urban watersheds.

Event Description: 
Water Sustainability & the City is a forum that will bring together urban water professionals from across British Columbia in order to explore tools and strategies to address environmental and management challenges in urban watersheds.
 
The forum is open to councillors, planners, engineers, utility managers, biologists, hydrologists, environmental technicians and anyone else with an interest in embracing strategies to further sustainable watershed management in B.C. cities.
 
The forum will provide an opportunity to:
  • Get updates about the rollout of B.C.'s new water legislation, the Water Sustainability Act (WSA);
  • Learn about opportunities for how the WSA can be developed to support urban watershed sustainability;
  • Take a tour of North Vancouver's rain gardens;
  • Engage in peer-to-peer learning with case studies and discussions of linking land-use planning with watershed outcomes, and convening multiple parties for local watershed governance.
Registration is free but spaces are limited, so please register to guarantee your spot.
