Event description

Description

The City of Vancouver is inviting development and construction industry members to participate in a planning process to create a Rain City Strategy, which will guide how we manage and use rainwater in Vancouver. Our goal is to capture and treat 90% of the rainwater that falls in Vancouver using a combination of green infrastructure and conventional pipe systems.

Help guide how we will reach our goals to improve water quality, increase resiliency and enhance the livability of Vancouver through sustainable rainwater management.


Industry roundtable workshops

There will be two industry roundtable workshops on March 6th, 2018. One will focus on complex large site developments and the other session is geared towards small scale residential developments. Industry members can choose which session fits better with their business activities. Coffee, tea, and light refreshments with gluten free options will be provided.
