Living Water Smart

British Columbians rely on our provinceís great water. In the next 25 years, we will see the provinceís population grow by another 1.4 million people, so our water resource will have to go a lot further without compromising natureís needs.

Living Water Smart is the provincial governmentís plan to keep our water healthy and secure for the future. Check this site often to learn how B.C. is working to protect and preserve our water and how you can be involved!
