POLIS Water Sustainability Act Submission on Proposed Groundwater Regulations

September 2015

British Columbia's Water Sustainability Act (WSA) is expected to come into force in early 2016. In late summer 2015, the Ministry of Environment accepted public feedback to guide the development of the first phase of WSA regulations. Drawing primarily from a forthcoming POLIS report on WSA regulations, the WSP prepared a formal submission specific to the proposed groundwater regulations. This submission outlines key concerns and priorities in moving forward, including seven recommendations to help make B.C.'s groundwater regulations robust and effective.
