  • About Us

    What is BC Water News?
    BC Water News' daily national edition is delivered via a free e-mail Monday through Friday with links to relevant news stories concerning water-related issues that are published online. We strive to be a leading industry source for water issues regionally and nationwide.

    BC Water News does not accept outside advertising, nor does it explicitly promote Brown and Caldwell services in an advertising format.

    We are unabashedly optimistic advocates for the water industry and the environment. We also recognize that the water industry faces many challenges and that the potential for conflict is ever-present; as such, we take no position on the issues of the day.

    We do not make the news, we merely provide as much information as we can to keep our readers informed and up to date. We are sensitive to the industry's public image, and strive to find sources that offer balanced reporting.

    At present, BC Water News has more than 40,000 subscribers.

    How do I read it?

  • Just the FAQ

    Managing your subscription to BC Water News — subscribing, unsubscribing and/or changing 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 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. It may be easier just to delete the e-mails when you return.

    How can I update my account to reflect my new e-mail address?
    That's easy. Just click the "Manage Subscription" link provided at the bottom of the daily e-mail and make any changes to your preferences as necessary.

    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

    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.
