The goal of Clean Foundation’s Atlantic Stormwater Initiative (ASI) is to bring effective stormwater management into the mainstream.
Stormwater management is increasingly a focus point for governments at many levels and for First Nations, as well as for NGOs, homeowners, decision-makers and developers. Current stormwater practices result in poor water quality, groundwater recharge issues, unhealthy ecosystems, increased erosion and added stresses on our water infrastructure.
By bringing these problems to the forefront and pairing them with solutions, resources and successful examples, ASI will work to improve our water quality and health.
Achieving this goal requires a strong network of stormwater experts, policy makers, landowners and stakeholders. This network will need to communicate freely and openly, toward a common goal of improving stormwater management across Atlantic Canada. ASI has worked to form the foundations of this network, address the needs of those involved, and effectively facilitate communication, information sharing, and collaboration.
ASI continues to build on the existing capacity for stormwater management within Atlantic Canada, and identify those solutions which will work best for our demanding climate.
