With water use top of mind in Metro Vancouver, one city has come up with a new way to use less.
Staff in Port Moody are saving 1.6 million litres of groundwater from Burnaby and Heritage Mountain to water their plants.
Dave Kidd is the city’s director of parks and public works.
“As a solution to the stage three water restrictions, our staff came up with this innovative solution, but we’re looking at moving forward now with using this ground water on a permanent basis.”
Kidd says they’d use it to water sports fields and clean streets.
