The Zumbro Watershed Partnership (ZWP)

The decision to become a Partnership instead of a Watershed District or Joint-Powers Board stemmed from the desire to be citizen driven. The founders wanted the ability to grow the organization. In a partnership, citizens and local organizations work together to address common interests and concerns. Everyone is involved, thus the plan and work has the consensus of all parties who have a stake in the watershed.

Alouette River Management Society (ARMS)

The Alouette River Management Society (ARMS) was formed as a society in 1993. The primary focus of ARMS, at that time, was to negotiate with BC Hydro an increase in the river’s base flow from the Alouette Dam. This would require changes to the management of the Alouette Dam and Hydro’s methods of flow releases. This goal was achieved in 1996, when the base river flow release was increased by fivefold.
