Agricultural Water Use on the Sunshine Coast(2015)
In this project, we met with producers and gathered data to understand how agricultural properties use water within the Chapman Creek water system on the Sunshine Coast of BC. This information was required in order to satisfy two important goals of the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Area Plan: increasing water conservation efforts and increasing local food production. This project also partly addressed action 2.1b ("Conduct a study of current & future water demand & supply for farming in the region") as outlined in the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Area Plan. The results from this work will help the SCRD plan for future water needs and improve conservation, education and outreach programs.
