The Sunshine Coast Regional District is developing a Water Strategy. Please submit your feedback today by filling out the survey below. Click subscribe at the top of the webpage to receive updates about this project.

The Project

The SCRD provides drinking water to more than 24,000 people in the region. Residents, businesses, schools, and hospitals rely on the SCRD water systems to meet their daily water needs.

The SCRD is developing a Water Strategy, a long-term strategic plan that sets the direction and priorities for drinking water projects and initiatives in our communities. The Water Strategy will look ahead to plan the future of water supply for our communities, taking into consideration factors such as climate change, population growth, and potential emergencies. While the SCRD is making progress to increase water supply and storage in the short term, the SCRD’s Water Strategy will be proactive to meet the community’s needs in the coming decades.

A Discussion Paper is now available that introduces the proposed strategy framework and how it will be developed.

Get Involved!

The SCRD is seeking feedback on the development of the Water Strategy from May 9 to June 30, 2022. Engagement activities are planned throughout the engagement period, including an Open House on Wednesday, May 25 at 3-6pm at the Seaside Centre, Sechelt, and small group roundtable discussions in all water systems.

The SCRD will use the feedback received to draft an SCRD Water Strategy, a 10-page public-facing document that explains how the SCRD plans to provide a safe and reliable water supply in the long term. The draft Water Strategy will be shared with the public by early 2023 for feedback.
