BCWWA Position Statements
The BC Water & Waste Association’s advocacy and public awareness efforts are guided by position statements that outline the Association’s opinion on important issues that affect risks to public health and the environment, and the sustainability of water, sewer and stormwater systems in BC and the Yukon.
Position statements are established by the BCWWA Board of Directors (BoD), based on input from technical advisory committees comprised of subject matter experts and extensive consultation with members and other external stakeholders, and guided by BCWWA’s protocol for preparation of position statements.
Please note, the BCWWA’s Board of Directors and Technical Committees will be reviewing and updating these statements, as needed, during 2017/18.
