Small Water Systems Project Report

Description:Approximately, 15% of BC water users receive their water from one of over 4,500 small water systems around the province. Yet, many of these small water systems face greater challenges than larger systems in delivering safe drinking water. These challenges include inadequate capacity to effectively manage operations and finances, lack of financial resources to invest in needed infrastructure, and issues ensuring proper stewardship and governance. In response to these challenges, the BC Ministry of Health asked the BCWWA to develop a pilot project to build capacity among small water systems in BC. The project was targeted at owners and operators of small water systems and originally intended to provide services to up to 40 systems from nine communities or regional areas. The response to the project was very positive, with 99 systems participating. This report provides a concise overview of the pilot project to date, including outcomes.
