Columbia Basin Trust

Project Description

We helped the Columbia Basin Trust develop Water Smart, the largest coordinated water conservation strategy in BC, with 25 communities committing to reducing their domestic water use by 20 per cent by 2015. As the lead consultant for the first part of the project, we conducted a high-level gap analysis that clearly identified that conservation measures are needed to effectively manage this precious resource. After collecting feedback from communities in the Columbia Basin, water experts, municipalities and the province, we helped Water Smart create a library with resources for communities in the Columbia Basin, started developing water conservation plans for 25 communities (beginning with 10) and produced a Basin-wide water conservation Charter to inspire collective efforts for years to come.
