Cowichan – Water Storage & Management Knowledge Transfer video 2016
The Agricultural Water Storage and Management Knowledge Transfer project shared information with producers in the Cowichan Valley and surrounding areas related to water storage development (and the associated requirements and regulations), as well as broader water management techniques, through a farm tour and two panel sessions at the Islands Agriculture Show in 2016.
The first tour/panel was focused on “Developing Water Storage on Your Farm” and featured visits to four local farms that featured different types of production systems utilizing differing water sources, water storage and water delivery systems.
The second panel was focused on “Drought and Water Supply: Water Management on Your Farm”. The panels included subject matter experts from the BC Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, agricultural producers and speakers from other organizations.
