Water Sustainability

     

Project Purpose

The Salt Spring Island Local Trust Committee’s Water Sustainability Project aims to understand
and address water quality and quantity issues on Salt Spring Island. This project has two streams:

1. Land Use Planning for Watershed Management

2. Coordination of the Salt Spring Island Watershed Protection Alliance (SSIWPA)

While these project streams are distinct, water issues are inherently multijurisdictional, so
there is often overlap between the two. 

Land Use Planning for Watershed Management
