BC’s Water Sustainability Act
Provincial water act should do more to protect flows.
OpEd by Craig Orr, Conservation advisor at Watershed Watch:
Even after more than a decade, I’m still touched by a sense of wonder. Think about it: 40 people giving up three and a half years of their lives just to talk about water…
“Low flows in rivers and streams are a particularly prominent threat to salmon and other aquatic life. And the situation will only worsen, no thanks to the looming spectre of further climate change.
It doesn’t have to be this way. The WSA could yet be a model of how to do things right if government commits to developing strong and enforceable regulations to protect water flows for fish and the environment.”
