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.
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.
