Environment

Responsibilities
The environment is not just a place we visit on the weekends. The environment is where we are every day and all the things that make life as abundant as we know it. From the water that brews our morning coffee, to materials used to build our house, the environment provides us with all the goods and services we need to live life and live it well.

The Environmental Services Division is responsible for a variety of programs and initiatives including
  • protection of water resources (watershed planning, liquid waste plans)
  • response to climate change (risk  assessments, adaptation strategies)
  • flood management (diking, sediment removal, preparation)
  • working with a wide variety of partners to protect environmental resources and values in the Cowichan Valley
