Watershed Planning

Thank you to everyone who provided input on the Cowichan Watershed topic as per the visuals below. A report summarizing this input was presented to the Board at its Regional Services Committee meeting on April 26, 2017.

At this point, staff is in the process of reviewing the input from the community and looking at options for watershed management in the Cowichan Region. Any updates on this process will be posted here and on PlaceSpeak.com.
