Abstract:

This water soft path case study was developed by the POLIS Water Sustainability Project team in collaboration with the Salt Spring Island Water Council. Water supply and quality are issues on parts of Salt Spring, with some drinking water lakes being close to their capacity to meet current demand and future commitments for additional supply, and difficulties with private wells particularly on the north end of the island. This strategy offers direction to Salt Spring's growing water use by recommending a commitment to “preserving water supplies for the next generation.”
