Put a Dent in Your Percent

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


As we all work to conserve water inside and outside our homes, the Sunshine Coast Regional District is asking residents, particularly those on the Chapman Water System to "Put a Dent in Your Percent."


As of September 8, we need to get water consumption in the Chapman Water System to 11 million litres or less. Small conservation steps can make a huge difference so if everyone reduces their water use by just 10%, it will help secure our water supply.

It's your space to share water conservation tips in the ideas panel below, check in on daily water updates to see if are reaching our current water conservation goal and have your questions answered about water conservation. We have also included a Frequently Asked Questions tab on the right where we accumulate questions being asked regularly on social media.

    I emailed Minister Katrine Conroy, and copied Nicholas Simons' office, asking the province to fast-track the SCRD's application for the Church Road well. At the end of my message is the reply his office sent me. My questions for the SCRD: Can you advise us of the ETA on the "Adaptive Management Plan" that the province says they are waiting on? Did the province tell the SCRD up front of all the information they needed from you, or are those requests from the province trickling in, and slowing down the application process? Here is the reply from Nicholas Simons office: "Thanks for copying Nicholas on your email to the Minister, Nicholas is currently away on holidays. The direct responsibility for water supply is a local government responsibility. However, regarding the Church road well water license application, there is a provincial component. I have reached out to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and natural resource development and received this response: The SCRD’s application is being reviewed by the Groundwater Authorizations team. Ministry staff have been working with the SCRD on several outstanding issues with this water license application. These include: - First Nations consultation is not complete. The SCRD had a meeting with Squamish First Nation and FLNRORD on July 29, 2021. - Due to the location of the wells and the large application volume there are two potential concerns that SCRD are addressing in their additional information required for their application: Potential impacts to Soames Creek, Potential saltwater intrusion. As part of the condition of their license, SCRD are working on an Adaptive Management Plan that will need to be submitted to the Ministry for approval. The SCRD has been working with a Ministry technical specialist on the requirements of their Adaptive Management Plan, and will be providing the following: - Location of hydrometric monitoring stations in Soames Creek. - Groundwater monitoring plan to monitoring saltwater intrusion and potential changes in aquifer recharge. - Mitigation plan if significant impacts to the aquifer and Soames Creek may occur. Nicholas has been working with both the SCRD and the Ministry to facilitate this application where he can. I hope this information is helpful, thanks for writing."

    I’ve been here for 11 years and all I ever see/hear is more talk, talk, talk. Why doesn’t the SCRD improve an increase water infrastructure OR STOP all additional development until the infrastructure can handle the increase demands? Do your job - stop talking, start acting!!!
