In November 2010, the ‘convening for action’ partners incorporated the Partnership for Water Sustainability in British Columbia as a non-profit society. The Water Balance Model and Water Bucket Website now reside within the Partnership. This will ensure the long-term sustainability of both.
“The Water Balance Model is a core element of the Water Sustainability Action Plan for British Columbia, released in February 2004. Furthermore, it is one of the 'twin engines' driving an outreach and continuing education program that is building leadership capacity in the local government setting. The other 'twin engine' is the Water Bucket website,” explains Tim Pringle, Partnership President.
“Local governments in four regions of BC are Water Balance Model Partners. For most, their support of the Water Balance Model goes back almost a decade. In recognition of their long-term commitment, we are pleased to announce that these local governments are deemed to be charter members of the Partnership for Water Sustainability.”
