Water storage and management in the Cowichan Valley

This report describes activities that shared information about water storage and management with producers on Vancouver Island.

Two events were hosted through the 2016 Islands Agriculture Show to provide information about developing on-farm water storage and farm water management/supply for drought.

The report includes lessons learned from the knowledge transfer activities and provides recommendations for future related work.

The video captures a farm tour and workshops held at the Islands Agriculture Show in the Cowichan Valley in February 2016. Topics covered include:

  • Different types of water storage
  • Different water sources
  • Regulations and licensing
  • How to determine if water storage is a good option
  • Additional resources to help with planning
