Greenangels is pleased to support MIIWSS by helping to purchase water meters for private well owners as an education tool leading to water conservation.
These meters will help to keep well owners aware of their consumption levels and when they may be over taxing their well. It is also a leak detection tool. Most water systems on the island are fully metered, using meters for leak detection and over consumption detection. It is the hope of MIIWSS that they are starting a trend that will catch on, just as the rainwater collection tanks are becoming the norm across the island. They are trying to plant a seed of an idea and hope to watch it grow.
Who is MIIWSS?…
Mayne Island Integrated Water Systems Society is a 100% volunteer non profit Society of concerned citizens, water purveyors, sister Associations and industry, drawn from the Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island, with a mandate to facilitate, educate and lobby on water conservation, preservation and protection for the Gulf Islands. Formed in the 1980s, bringing together only organized water systems for discussions, sharing supplies and information, MIIWSS expanded membership capabilities in 2005, inviting individual well owners, as well as water systems, groundwater organizations and members of the water industry to participate, regardless of location.
