These resources detail the process of developing and testing a tool for integrated farm water planning.
The Phase 1 (2014) report outlines the process of developing a toolkit. It details the scan and consultation process that informed the information in toolkit and the recommendations that came from piloting the toolkit with a small group of producers.
The Phase 2 (2015) report summarizes the results of the pilot project where nine farms in the Cowichan Valley tested the toolkit and developed a farm water plan. This report summarizes the types of farm water issues identified through the planning process.
A final phase of piloting the toolkit took place in the Okanagan in 2017, where the toolkit was further refined.
