The CVRD, in partnership with Cowichan Tribes, is developing a plan to manage rain and flood waters affecting communities in the Sh-hwuykwselu watershed. The plan will help ensure that our communities remain safe from flooding and erosion as well as improve the quality of stormwater runoff.

From now until October 2018, we will be working to gather detailed information, including feedback from the public, about rain water and flood management issues and opportunities in the watershed. This information will be used to consider priority actions that will be outlined in the Stormwater Management & Mitigation Plan.

We invite interested community members to share knowledge and experiences with flooding, erosion, and water quality in the Sh-hwuykwselu watershed, and to talk about ways to move forward.
