“Watershed Stewardship is an ethic and responsibility shared by all people that live, work, or recreate within our watershed. We must all understand what impact our daily household, commercial and industrial activities have on the water resource, and think of ways to minimize any negative impacts on flows or quality. By practicing good water stewardship we all do our part to protect this essential resource. This webpage serves as an educational portal to provide background information on the Kiskatinaw Watershed as well as recommended solutions, beneficial management practices and partnership opportunities.” Hear Reg Whiten, City of Dawson Creek speak at the #5thBSC on Feb 28th at 10:45
