Source Assessment Response Plan (SARP)
The Chapman Creek watershed supplies drinking water to roughly 90% of the residents on the Sunshine Coast. To enhance the protection of this invaluable resource, the Sunshine Coast Regional District is working with the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority to develop a watershed management plan under the Drinking Water Protection Act legislative process. To date, this process has included a watershed risk assessment that identified and rated the hazards to drinking water quality, the formation of a Technical Working Group committee consisting of First Nations and stakeholders in the Chapman watershed, and the development of a draft Chapman Creek Source Assessment Response Plan (SARP) that specifies management measures to mitigate the hazards identified in the risk assessment.
The SARP consists of a set of actions that, once implemented, will ensure that the risks to drinking water quality within the Chapman Creek watershed are minimized.
