Cowichan Marks Progress for World Water Day 2016

Media Release, Cowichan Watershed Board, March 21, 2016

(Duncan) Cowichan Watershed Board is marking the UN’s World Water Day on March 22 by congratulating local residents and water suppliers for significant water-saving progress in the Cowichan Water Challenge in 2015. The Challenge engages most of the region’s major water suppliers in a collective race to reduce home water use by 20% over four years (2014-2018).

Overall residential water consumption went down last year in nearly every participating water system despite last summer’s severe drought, which might normally lead to increased demand. This is largely due to Watering Restriction Bylaws going to Stage 3 early last July. Hopefully we are also seeing an improving culture of conservation (and less water waste) year-round as we all become more aware of the value of our water.   Click here to continue reading...
