2017 Interface Fires: Risks & Mitigation

On average, over 1800 wildfires occur each year in BC, destroying about 155,000 hectares of land- threatening out homes and infrastructure.

With wildfires being a reality for most of British Columbia, and with dramatic examples of the devastation that these fires can have when they interface with communities, water and wastewater facilities have particular risks for their own infrastructure, including watersheds. This workshop is designed to provide attendees with knowledge about interface fires, including assessing risk before and after a fire event, mitigation practices, and tools that are available for communities including funding opportunities.

Who should attend?

Individuals who are involved in developing risk management plans for water facilities and watersheds, including operations managers, operators, consultants and engineers.
