The Shuswap Watershed Council has published several annual reports on water quality in the Shuswap watershed.
The SWC has also commissioned studies on water quality: see Water Quality Research, Reports and Information.
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.
