Metro Vancouver is responsible for developing long-range plans for managing our region’s drinking water, including our three sources: Capilano, Seymour and Coquitlam.
The primary goal of these plans is to provide clean, safe drinking water. The plans also reflect healthy watershed attributes (fisheries, potential for clean energy, diverse wildlife and plant populations, recreation etc.) and address the future, particularly supplying water to a growing population and anticipating changes in supply resulting from climate change.
To be clear and transparent about meeting this responsibility, Metro Vancouver regularly reports on statistics and monitoring programs and the progress of implementing these plans.
