What are you doing to conserve water? Enter our WaterSaver contest!!!


Whether your household receives water from a municipal or RDN water system or you have you own well, water is a shared resource. On the 'wet coast' of B.C., it is easy to take our water supply for granted. In dry summer months, water consumption triples, even though there is much less water available. As the region grows, more people will be using the same limited resource. The quantity and quality of our water are directly impacted by human activity including the amount we use on a daily basis. It is important that we all do our part to protect our water.

The RDN's WaterSaver contest aims to promote efficient water use practices this summer through our online contest!

Show off your water-saving landscaping, efficient irrigation, rainwater harvesting or other ways you are reducing outdoor water use on your property for a chance to win a rain barrel and native plants prize package!

Plus all entries get a lawn sign to proudly display that you are doing your best to be WaterSmart!
