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.

This submission outlines key concerns and priorities in moving forward, including seven recommendations to help make B.C.’s groundwater regulations robust and effective.
