Helping you protect your water
Here in the Regional District of Nanaimo, we enjoy some of the best water in the world. Maintaining this precious resource requires that we all use water with care. Whether you live in a rural community or an urban setting, what you do today can affect local water quality for years to come.
Why is it important to conserve water?
On the 'wet coast' of BC, it is easy to take our water supply for granted. In dry summer months, water consumption triples, even though there is much less water available. As the region grows, more people will be using the same limited resource. The quantity and quality of our water is directly impacted by human activity including the amount we use on a daily basis.
It is important that we all do our part to protect water for the future.
Team WaterSmart is brought to you by the Regional District of Nanaimo - Drinking Water and Watershed Protection Program, Town of Qualicum Beach, Fairwinds Community & Resort, City of Nanaimo, City of Parksville and District of Lantzville.
