Choosing to be Water Smart

British Columbia has one of the highest per capita water use rates in the world. As our population has grown, as industrial activities have expanded, and as agricultural demands have increased, there is often not enough water where we need it, and too much where we don’t. The time of abundance is over. We cannot afford to waste water.

B.C. will continue to experience periods of tight water supply and face increasing demands. Using water more wisely is the key to a sustainable water future for everyone; fortunately, we have a lot of room for improvement!
