Drinking Water Week

Drinking Water Week

Get to Know Your H20
May 20 - 26, 2013

For this year's drinking water week, contests were held for people to demonstrate through photos and posters how they protect, respect and enjoy their drinking water. The submissions were all entered into a draw to win a helicopter tour of our region's watersheds, provided by SunWest Helicopters Ltd. of Qualicum Beach! On June 7th the draw winners received their prize, a beautiful day to see our watersheds from the sky. Here are a couple photos from the trip!
