Project Description:

The program focused on water conservation using a community-based education oriented model, addressing residents on the local sprinkling restrictions, engaging the agricultural sector in discussing water use, augmenting and participating in workshops with partners such as the Friends of Summerland Gardens and the Naramata Community Association as well as addressing emerging conservation and quality issues with water sources. In the communities, with `on the ground patrolling', the Water Ambassador has been able to observe first hand behaviors, assist in modifying behaviors and look at what steps could be taken in the future to continue water conservation habits.
