Shuswap Watershed Map


The Shuswap watershed is much more than the lake: it is all the land and bodies of water that drain to the outlet of Little Shuswap Lake. It includes forests, fields, hillsides, wetlands, meadows, creeks, rivers and lakes from the Okanagan Highlands in the south, to the Monashee mountains in the north and east, to the Shuswap Highlands in the northwest.

This Shuswap Watershed map shows the entire Shuswap watershed, divided into seven major sub-basins coded by colour. The map also illustrates the South Thompson River basin, immediately downstream of Little Shuswap Lake.

The Shuswap watershed forms part of the larger Thompson and Fraser watersheds.

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.
