ABOUT THE PLAN
The management of storm water is a key component in protecting quality of life, property and aquatic systems. The purpose of the Storm Water Management (Drainage) Plan is to provide a clear picture in applying land use management tools and Best Management Practices to protect property and aquatic habitat, while at the same time accommodating land development and population growth. Consultants and staff have worked with Council, stakeholders and community members to address concerns, share ideas and map out recommendations for the effective management of storm water.
The District of West Kelowna hired RSB Engineering to assist in the development of the Storm Water Management Plan.
