ABOUT WATER SMART

Columbia Basin Trust supports the ideas and efforts of the people in the Columbia Basin.

The Columbia Basin Water Smart Initiative (Water Smart) helps regional districts, municipalities and First Nations across the region reduce their local water consumption and supports communities to meet their water conservation targets.

As of 2014, participating communities had reduced water consumption by an average of 12 per cent. They did this by finding and fixing leaks within the water water system, and through outdoor water conservation initiatives.
