The City of New Westminster is developing a Citywide Integrated Stormwater Management Plan (ISMP) to guide the planning, funding, and development of stormwater management initiatives for the City.

Key questions include:

 

·         How can we improve the quality of stormwater to ensure that our watersheds are healthy?
