About the Shuswap Watershed Council
The Shuswap Watershed Council (SWC) was established in 2014 as a watershed-based partnership to enhance water quality and safe recreation in the Shuswap. There are up to 18 members that represent three regional districts, two municipalities, the Secwepemc Nation, two provincial government agencies and Shuswap communities.
The SWC is a collaborative, non-regulatory group. It works alongside organizations that have regulatory roles in managing the Shuswap watershed, complementing their work and carefully avoiding duplication.
