New Westminster Citywide Integrated Stormwater Management Plan – Public Consultation Nov 16 2016

November 4, 2016

The City of New Westminster is developing a Citywide Integrated Stormwater Management Plan (ISMP) to guide the planning, funding, and development of stormwater management initiatives for the City. The ISMP will establish a practical plan to enhance our watersheds, address water quality, and determine best practices for managing our rainfall.

We welcome members of the public to please join us for a brief presentation, activities, and interactive discussion on the Draft Action Plan.

WHAT:      ISMP Draft Action Plan Review – Public Consultation
WHEN:       Wednesday, November 16, 2016; 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
WHERE:     “Fir Room” Century House – 620 Eighth St. New Westminster

Please try to arrive five minutes early for sign-in and light refreshments as we will be starting the presentation at 6:00 pm.

Key questions include:

·         How can we improve the quality of stormwater to ensure that our watersheds are healthy?

·         How can we manage the quantity of stormwater to minimize flooding, erosion, and sewer overflows?

·         What are some potential tools to help us manage our stormwater?

·         What are some potential programs and regulations to help manage stormwater?

·         How do we implement a stormwater management program?

·         How do we measure success?

We welcome your input on the Draft Action Plan so it serves as a practical and community-supported guide to help achieve New Westminster’s stormwater management goals.
