Living Water Smart

British Columbians rely on our province’s great water. In the next 25 years, we will continue to see the province’s population grow by another 1.4 million people so the same amount of water will have to go a lot further, without compromising nature’s needs.

Living Water Smart is the provincial government’s vision and plan to keep our water healthy and secure for the future. Through this plan, the B.C. government commits to new actions and targets – and builds on existing efforts to protect and keep our water safe.

This site will tell you about how B.C. is protecting and preserving its water resources through planning, regulatory change, education, and incentives like economic instruments and rewards.
