Cowichan Watershed Board Governance Manual 2010

The Cowichan Watershed Board (CWB) governance model is intended to support collaborative, local decision making at the regional/watershed–scale within the existing institutional and legal water framework. As an advisory entity, the CWB’s role includes actively working with and encouraging the regulatory agencies to base their water management decisions on the Board’s recommendations. As the province adopts water management reforms, the model will co-evolve and the CWB could receive some form of delegated authority to make some local water management decisions.
