We try to keep our finger on the pulse of the communities of Cowichan Valley and Salt Spring Island and operate with local concerns in mind. To help us do this, we established a community advisory forum in 2004.
A broad range of individuals from community interest groups attend our forums: residents, business owners, environmental leaders, employees, First Nations, local government and more. The group discusses issues related to our operations and offers input. This invaluable feedback helps us form our plans for the future.
For more information or details about upcoming forums contact Darlene Poole at 250-246-6122.
Catalyst operates a weir which regulates water flow from Cowichan Lake into the Cowichan River for much of the year. The Cowichan River is the source of the water used at Crofton Division and of drinking water for local residents. Catalyst collaborates closely with regulatory authorities regarding weir operation, and it engages with local stakeholders on water management through its involvement with the Cowichan Watershed Board. Catalyst also contributed to and endorsed a comprehensive water management plan developed through a multi-stakeholder process.
