Learn About: New Canadian Regulations
In May 2018, the Standards Council of Canada in partnership with the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) and International Code Council (ICC), released the long awaited Rainwater Harvesting Systems National Standard: CSA B805-18/ICC 805-2018. This was a major development in the rainwater community in Canada as up until then, Canadian rainwater professionals were without standardized guidelines. While municipalities adopted storm water policies and plumbing codes were modified to include rainwater systems, there was a need for comprehensive guidelines addressing rainwater harvesting system design and installation as an alternative source of water for potable and non-potable uses.
