Shuswap Water Quality Data and Highlights
The Shuswap Watershed Council has produced two resources for you to learn about our watershed’s water quality.
Much of the water quality data that is collected in the Shuswap watershed – and all across the province – is kept in a provincial government database. The database is called the “Environmental Monitoring System” or EMS. You can access water quality data from it using a web reporting tool.
We know that using a database can be overwhelming and frustrating. We’ve produced a step-by-step user guide to help get you started.
To accompany the user guide, you can also check out these Environmental Monitoring System maps that display the names of monitoring stations across the watershed.
Check out the Water Quality Data User Guide.
Shuswap water quality summary – coming soon!
The SWC is preparing a summary of 2016 water quality data for the watershed. It will be posted here soon.
Detailed water quality summaries for the Shuswap watershed were created in 2012 and 2013 by the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process. Learn more.
