To help communities map a path forward, the Partnership for Water Sustainability in British Columbia has released the Primer on the Ecological Accounting Process (EAP). The Primer introduces a valuation methodology that uses readily available financial information from the BC Assessment database. The methodology yields an asset value for the stream corridor and can then be used for budget purposes related to asset management. The EAP has the potential to be a catalyst for action by local governments.
