Shuswap Water Quality Data and Highlights

The Shuswap Watershed Council has produced two resources for you to learn about our watershed’s water quality.

New! Shuswap water quality summary

The SWC has published its first annual report on water quality in the Shuswap watershed: see Water Quality Summary Report for 2016.

Water quality reports for the Shuswap watershed were developed in 2012 and 2013 by the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process. Learn more.

User Guide for retrieving water quality datswc_water_data_guide_250px.pnga

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.

About the Fraser Basin Council

The Fraser Basin Council (FBC) is a charitable non-profit organization that brings people together to advance sustainability in the Fraser River Basin and throughout BC. Established in 1997, FBC is a collaboration of four orders of government (federal, provincial, local and First Nations) along with those from the private sector and civil society. We work with people in multiple sectors, helping them find collaborative solutions to today’s issues through a commitment to the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability. Our focus is on healthy water and watersheds, action on climate change and air quality and strong, resilient communities and regions.
