Drainage Master Plan & Tseycum Creek Stormwater Management Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The District of North Saanich is developing plans to improve the management of our drainage infrastructure as part of the District's overall asset management program:

  • The Drainage Master Plan will serve as a guide how we plan, operate, and maintain our drainage infrastructure in the coming years as our climate changes. The plan will identify levels of service, system deficiencies, and priorities for potential upgrades.
  • The Tseycum Creek Integrated Stormwater Management Plan (ISMP) will help us better understand our watershed and the relationship between drainage servicing, land use, and the environment. The plan will provide recommendations for improving how we manage our stormwater through planning, infrastructure improvements, and best practices.

Planning will be informed by existing policies as well as input from key stakeholders, local First Nations groups, and the community. The plans will be our road map for infrastructure planning and investment to control flooding and erosion, protect our health and environment, and work with community members towards a sustainable future.

Our Watersheds

What's the Process?

The Drainage Master Plan process commenced in spring 2021 and is anticipated to be complete in 2022.

The Tseycum Creek ISMP process has now progressed to a Draft Plan. In Summer of 2022, we engaged with stakeholders, local First Nations, and the community to share highlights of the Draft Plan and welcome questions and comments.

The plans are anticipated to be reviewed by council in fall/winter 2022.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the engagement process for the Tseycum Creek Integrated Stormwater Management Plan (ISMP).

    This past summer, we heard valuable input including experiences and ideas for stormwater management through the information sessions and public comment form.

    Learn more about what we heard during the engagement process by reading the Public Engagement Summary - Fall 2022.

    Your input will be considered as we refine the Draft ISMP as part of the next steps in the process. A final ISMP is anticipated later this year.

    Stay tuned for further updates from the District.
