The City of Williams Lake has agreed to enter into a 2-year Fee for Service with the Cariboo Chilcotin Conservation Society (CCCS) for the Water Wise and Waste Wise Programs.
Mary Forbes, Waste Educator for the program, says the funds will go a long way in educating school children the importance of being waste and water wise.
She adds that the program has been very beneficial for the community.
The CCCS meanwhile said that average water flow rates for 2011-2013 were 28% lower than 2006 levels.
The 2 year Fee for Service with the City of Williams Lake will see the water wise program receiving $38,000 and the the waste wise program $24,500 per year.
