The Nicola Water Use Management Plan is the result of a community-led planning process. This process began in late 2004 and consisted of a plan initiation phase (Phase 1), plan development (Phase 2), plan evaluation (Phase 3) and review by the community, government and stakeholders. A draft plan was completed in March 2009 and a year later, the Plan was submitted to the provincial government for adoption.
The Nicola Water Use Management Plan (Nicola WUMP) was developed by a diverse group of people seeking solutions to long-standing water issues. The planning process came about in response to a desire to ensure that the future water supply would be divided equitably among all water users balancing the watershed’s social, economic, traditional and ecological values.
