Comprehensive Regional Water Plan (CRWP)
The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) manages and operates a Regional Water System that currently supplies water to approximately 23,000 residents on the Sunshine Coast.
Although mostly out of sight, the SCRD water system consists of an intricate network of pipes, pump stations, and reservoirs that need to be well planned and maintained to ensure that the region’s water users receive high quality water in an efficient and uninterrupted manner.
Included in the Regional Water Service Area are all municipal water systems from Langdale to Earls Cove, with the exception of North and South Pender Harbour, and Hopkins Landing water systems. The primary water source for the Regional Water System is Chapman Creek.
The Comprehensive Regional Water Plan maps out a strategy that balances demand side (conservation) and supply side (expansion) practices to meet the water needs for the Regional Water Service Area over the next 25 years.
