British Columbia’s Water Sustainability Act

January 8, 2016

The provincial government of British Columbia intends to bring their Water Sustainability Act (WSA) into effect this year of 2016. The Act will provide new tools to help ensure that water stays healthy and secure for BC’S future generations. It will also allow the government to manage surface water and groundwater as one resource, provide water users with greater certainty regarding their water rights, and establish clear rules about managing water during times of scarcity.

BC’s water users who use groundwater for non-domestic purposes (e.g., irrigation, municipal water supply, mining, water bottling)  will be affected by the new WSA, due to new rules that require water licences.
