CVRD Watersheds

There are 16 watersheds that have most of their area in the CVRD.  13 of these watersheds flow to the more developed east coast.  The other 3 flow to west coast which is less populated and mostly forestry and park lands.  We also share several watersheds with neighboring regional districts.  Click on a watershed for more information.
