WaterWealth report card given an ‘A’

I have been following the work of WaterWealth in Chilliwack since its inception a few months ago, and have been greatly impressed.

I have been following the work of WaterWealth in Chilliwack since its inception a few months ago, and have been greatly impressed.

As a biologist working in Fraser Valley waterways, I see first-hand both the value the habitat in them and  the growing damage being done. Our streams and ditches, are the most productive salmon habitats in the Fraser Basin – itself the most productive salmon river in the world. Agricultural pollution, ongoing urbanization,pipelines and mining all threaten this invaluable resource.

Given the dearth of political leadership on these issues at all levels of government, it is inspiring to see a local, grassroots initiative focus on our water resources with such energy and professionalism!

The report cards are fantastic – well researched and transparent.
