OUR POLICY STATEMENT
The WaterWealth Project is a solutions-based community group. We believe there are a number of very practical steps that governments can take to support our goal of 100% community control over the decisions that affect our local home waters.
We also believe that government must do much more to develop and enforce laws to safeguard our precious water wealth from contamination and degradation. Click HERE to read our position on proposed policy solutions to achieve our goal.
LETTER ON A NEW BC WATER ACT
B.C.’s Water Act is over a century old. A product of a bygone era, the laws governing water are not equipped to deal with conventional challenges facing our waters, such as large-scale industrial activities, intensive agriculture and urban sprawl.
We need a new Water Act for BC to protect the Fraser Valley's water wealth. This Act must be supported by free, prior, and informed consent from First Nations.
