Regional District of Nanaimo Community Survey Results
In early 2014, the Regional District of Nanaimo engaged Ipsos Reid to complete a community survey by telephone. This survey and its results are a key component of the Operational and Efficiency Review we are conducting to examine our operations and look for efficiencies. Our thanks to all of the residents in the RDN’s Electoral Areas and member municipalities who took the time to participate.
Learn about where and when biosolids are applied. We provide monthly application maps with mountain bike trails overlaid. Since 2003, RDN biosolids have been used in Vancouver Island University's (VIU) Forest Fertilization Program. Through this program, 100 per cent of RDN biosolids are diverted from the landfill and applied to forested land to improve tree growth.
Regional Water Budget Study
A Water Budget uses simple accounting to compare how much water goes into and out of a system. When more water is taken out than is replenished, the system may experience stress. The RDN commissioned this inventory of our surface water and groundwater to compile what is known about water quantity and demand in our region. Explore the reports at www.rdnwaterbudget.ca
