Our Water Is Precious—Let’s Protect it

As Hornby is an island with no lakes, rivers, or snow-capped mountains, its main source of water is from drilled and dug wells, along with some rainwater collection.

Hornby Water Stewardship (HWS) and Hornby Island Community Economic Enhancement Corporation (HICEEC) collaborated to produce the Hornby Water Plan and an educational website to strive to ensure the quantity and quality of water for Hornby Island, both in the short and long term.
