About Us

What is BC Water News?
The eight regional editions of BC Water News are a free daily and weekly mailing with links to news stories concerning water resource issues. It is an "instant news-clipping service" for people who need to stay current on regional and local water issues. At present, BC Water News has more than 30,000 subscribers.

What kinds of news does it cover?
We cover news on potable water, wastewater, groundwater, flood control, surface water, and stormwater. We also carry run-off related coastal water quality news as well as out-of-area stories that seem important, interesting, or (sometimes) amusing. In addition, BC Water News has the web's most comprehensive links to water resource agencies and professional organizations.

Who can subscribe?
Subscriptions are available to officials and employees of agencies directly involved in managing water resources. Agencies may request subscriptions for their consultants, lawyers, or other advisers. We retain the absolute right to refuse a subscription to any person, for any reason.

How do I read it?
BC Water News is delivered daily to your e-mail inbox as a short e-mail with a link to the news page. To read it, simply click on the link. If you have a web browser, it should open automatically and display the news page. To read or print any story listed, simply click on the headline. When you're done with the story, close the story window and you will again see the newsletter.

How can I subscribe?
Easy. Just visit our subscription site at
www.bcwaternews.com. You qualify if you have an interest in water issues and are:

  • A director, board member, or employee of a water resources agency, or
  • Employed in public service or education with the "need to know" regarding the water resources field.

We are sorry that, due to the administrative workload in managing our subscriber rolls and the expense of distribution, we cannot offer subscriptions to persons in private companies such as equipment vendors, engineers, consultants, etc.

You said it's free. I see also that there's no advertising. What's the catch?
If there is one, we haven't found it yet!



Managing your subscription to BC's Water News — subscribing, unsubscribing and/or changiing your e-mail address — is automated and in your hands. Here are some helpful tips:

I no longer wish to receive BC Water News. What should I do?
Simply click on the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the daily or weekly e-mail you receive. You will be prompted to unsubscribe. If you choose to do so, your account will be removed from our mailing list. Come back soon though! Also, if you no longer have access to your e-mail, don't worry — your subscription will be dropped automatically after a few e-mail bounces.

I'm going on vacation. Can you suspend my account?
Sorry, no. You will need to unsubscribe and re-subscribe when you come back. It may be easier just to delete the e-mails when you return.

Can you change my account to reflect my new e-mail address?
Again, no. But you can. Simply unsubscribe (see above) and re-subscribe with your new e-mail address at www.bcwaternews.com.

I want to receive BC Water News at both work and home. How can I do this?
Simple. Just subscribe again using the e-mail address you want to add.

I'm not receiving BC Water News any more. What's happening?
Your subscription may have been placed on hold due to bounced e-mails. Check your Junk mail folder, add us to your Contacts list, or make sure your mail server is not flagging us as spam. You also can resubscribe by signing up at www.bcwaternews.com.

If that works, fine. But if you receive a message that you are already subscribed, then chances are that your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or I.T. department is blocking our e-mails as spam. This happens from time to time! You will need to talk with them and have them remedy the situation. Be sure to tell them the originating domain, which is pr2.netatlantic.com, as well as brwncald.com.
