British Columbia Partnership announces that rebuilt “Water Balance Model” is now LIVE!

Linux Platform Enables Expanded Capabilities The Water Balance Model for British Columbia is a scenario comparison tool. Launched in 2003, it can help local governments create a future watershed vision by informing their decisions about the impacts, or not, of their ‘water footprint’ on watershed health. In December 2011, the Water Balance Model Partnership completed a year-long program to rebuild both the website front-end and

British Columbia Partnership announces that Drainage Infrastructure Screening Tool is now LIVE!

Many drainage conveyance systems operate without serious problems for many years. Yet many engineering studies recommend plans for pipe replacement and upsizing that would cost tens of millions of dollars, money that local governments do not have. Reliance on complex computer models and inflexible application of design standards may be having an unintended consequence.   Framework for Screening and Decision-Making To help local governments make informed decisions

British Columbia Partnership announces that rebuilt “Water Balance Model” now incorporates Tree Canopy Module

In 2005, the District of North Vancouver initiated a precedent-setting initiative in partnership with the University of British Columbia (UBC).  By the beginning of 2007, a network of 60 “tree canopy climate stations” was in place across the North Shore region of Metro Vancouver. The research findings were published in a Master’s thesis dated April 2010. The research has informed development of the Tree Canopy Module
