Water down the drain

Our CRD is hoping to educate us on the subject of water use in our homes, and is promoting changes we can make to better conserve our fresh water supply.

When it comes to indoor water use, about 65% is in the bathroom with showers using the second-most water and the third-most energy in the house.

Read the document below to get the whole story and contribute to the effort to achieve water-resilience for the district – your water supplier – in the years ahead.

Kings Community Nature Space: Volunteers Applauded!

A shout out to the volunteers who showed up in force Nov. 16th at the Kings Community Nature Space (ex Hydro fields)! And a special mention and thanks to the grade 6 Eco-Ed students who showed up from Lansdowne Middle School’s south campus.

You can check out a recap of the event on the “Save Kings Community Nature Space on Bowker Creek” Facebook group’s page, below.

In February and March of next year, the area will be replanted with native plants supplied via a BC Hydro grant, and Saanich Parks staff will direct, assist and hopefully educate volunteers at that future event.

For additional information, please see this Saanich Pulling Together page.
