Waterbucket Features "Worth Every Penny" Report
"Water pricing is a hot issue in communities across the country. Yet it remains an almost totally untapped option for helping ensure our water service infrastructure -- the pipes, pumps and reservoirs -- is well maintained and up to date," states Kirk Stinchcombe, co-author of Worth Every Penny: A Primer on Conservation-Oriented Water Pricing.
Sustainable Service Delivery is another emerging issue in BC. Changing and/or additional demands mean the local government workload is expanding. Local governments are being challenged to maintain and/or replace existing infrastructure over time and to ‘do more with less’.
Part of the rollout to stimulate a national dialogue on sustainable water management, the Nanaimo Water Pricing Workshop program held on September 9th, 2010, is a unique blend of research and practice.
