To celebrate World Water Day, the Honourable Minister Mary Polak presented the Farmland-Riparian Interface Stewardship Program (FRISP)with the second annual Excellence in Water Stewardship Award yesterday in Vancouver.
FRISP was one of 11 nominations from across the province that were considered for this prestigious award sponsored by Canada’s Premiers. FRISP is recognized as a leader in promoting water stewardship in the agriculture sector in BC and is known for its collaborative and cost effective approach to watershed and riparian area protection and management.
The program works closely with provincial agriculture producers to protect and enhance water quality and riparian vegetation, and prevent and mitigate agricultural impacts on streams and lakes.
