Profile – RAIN K-W Program
The RAIN K-W program was initiated as a partnership with REEP Green Solutions, Green Communities Canada and the Cities of Kitchener and Waterloo.This initiative provided innovative, hands-on community engagement that educated residential property owners on how to take practical action to manage stormwater on their properties. Online educational resources were also developed related to stormwater management.
The RAIN Business Visit was piloted in 2013 and is one of many activities developed as part of the RAIN K-W program, for more information refer to www.slowrain.ca The RAIN Business Visit focuses on educating property owners, in the industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) sector, about drainage issues on their property and provide them with useful, actionable solutions.
Property owners have been engaged in the piloting of the Business Visit, with the result being one of the property owners participating in a demonstration project, which was recently featured in a best practices tour with the National Water and Wastewater Benchmarking Initiative.
