02 Aug 2020-2022 Watershed Monitoring Reports
Our 2020-2022 Watershed Monitoring Reports are now on our website!
Our Kootenay Lake Watershed Monitoring Program utilizes the Canadian Aquatic Biomonitoring Inventory Network (CABIN) national water quality monitoring protocol to assess water quality through the collection and analysis of macroinvertebrate aquatic insect populations. CABIN-certified volunteers monitor several streams throughout the summer and early fall to gather samples that are sent off to a taxonomist for identification, and water quality samples are sent to a laboratory for assessment.
20 individual stream reports can be found at the link above, along with information on how to interpret the data.
